"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."

beet greens - stems discarded and leaves shredded
1 1/4 teaspoons
chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
sea salt to taste
cracked black pepper to 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!
this was a flavourful and fast side dish.
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!
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!
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.
we really enjoyed this.. didn't have sun dried tomatoes so i tripled the amount of capers.. (yes i LOVE capers).. don't have beets & beet greens around that much.. but this will definitely be the #1 choice for when we do.. ty for the recipe
