Sauteed Beet Greens

Recipe by  

"My grandmother would pan-fry beet greens with garlic and olive oil. Following her example, I added sun-dried tomatoes and capers for a little more pop! The kids love it and it's quick and easy. Please note, although I have measurements listed, I am a 'pinch here and pinch there' type of cook. You may need to adjust for your personal taste."

I used the stems of the greens, and omitted the capers. The sun dried tomatoes were an unexpected pleasure in this dish! I'll be making this again!

My husband usually does most of the cooking in our house but the other night he was engrossed in a TV show so I hit the stove! I wanted a tasty way to prepare beet greens which he had already washed and cut up (sweet man). I found this recipe and it was close to what he usually does so I gave it a try. BANG! Delicious. I did not have the sun dried tomatoes, but there were two partially used tomatoes in the fridge so I cut them up and tossed them in with the beet greens and capers. I'd surely make this recipe again. Thanks! Jeanne

I made this for my supper tonight. I'm also a "pinch of this, pinch of that cook" so I didn't follow exactly. I needed to have a protein, too, so I added 3 oz. of frozen Boca crumbles. Topped it all with some rice vinegar (that's all I had). It was a pretty good, one pan meal. Thanks!

This was my first introduction to beet greens and I loved it. I had some ricotta cheese I needed to use up so I threw it in there and loved it.
