This dish uses the whole beetroot, both the red and green parts. Roasted sliced beetroot is tossed with sauteed beetroot greens. This side dish goes exceedingly well with chicken or pork.
I had never had beet greens before and I loved them in this recipe! I used red onion and it looked so nice I will serve it to guests. Tastes like strong spinach. I am thinking of all of the beet greens I have waisted before......and all of the nutrients that went right in the trash! - 15 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Let me say, WONDERFUL! I bought three large organic beets. I added 3 scallions, 1/2 med. onion, 5 cloves of garlic chopped, all the greens, and followed the recipe with a little more organic olive oil added. It was a great dish! I will serve this again, definately a favorite. Watch out to be red handed when you take off the skins. Even the baked stems were tasty - 16 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I really love beets but had never eaten the greens before. This recipe was delicious! I also added finely chopped cabbage after the onions were carmelized and a little bit of balsamic vinegar. - 01 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
