"This is a great way to use every part of the fresh beets you buy. You can get two delicious side dishes out of this one vegetable." — BN61079

This was an excellent way to prepare beets. I roasted the beets in the oven as instructed but with potatos and carrots as well, then tossed them with a tiny bit of olvie oil and feta. I also added mushrooms and green onions to the beet greens when I sauteed them. My children loved it. A+++
Really delicious. I was afraid of the greens because greens often taste bitter to me, but I couldn't get enough of them once they were on my plate. My beets took longer than an hour to cook (I wanted them very well done). The beets didn't taste as delicious as I've had in restaurants.
I am AMAZED. I tried this recipe because I felt stuck in a vegetable rut. I wanted a veggie we don't eat often. I was wary because hubby doesn't like beets and I don't care for greens. But I tried it and it is SENSATIONAL. Hubby loved it, I loved it. The greens were the surprise hit. And felt great getting two veggies out of one. I added butter and a bit more oil because it didn't seem like enough. This was a mistake as my greens turned out a bit too oily/buttery. Perfect as is. THANKS!
I saw beets at the Farmers Market and bought them. I found this recipe and tried it due to the positive reviews! I can only say that the roasted beets are absolutely delicious. I have made this recipe twice now. Roasting time for beets definitely depends on the size. For those who have never tried fresh beets...give them a try! Well worth the roasting time!
Excellent recipe(s). I've made them several times, and we enjoy them immensely. Note that the time given to bake or roast the beets is an approximation--how long you cook them in actuality depends upon the size and age of the beets, as well as the vagaries of each particular oven. When I'm using baby beets, the time is slightly less than one hour; at this time of year (fall), I'm using older. larger beets, so I'll figure this in, and cook them for up to an hour and a half.
Oh, yeah--tobasco is tasty on the cooked greens, too.
simple and delicious. I was generous with the garlic and onion and went light on the oil--got a great flavor. also, used 1 bunch yellow beets and 1 bunch red for a variety. like other people have said, the beets will take an hour to cook, maybe longer.
Saw recipe went out and got beets. I have been doing both steamed for years. This was great. I don't know why they don't sell beet greens like, chard,spinach or other greens. they are best, better than spinach..
This recipe gets an excellent review from me for several reasons. It has relitively few ingredients, which I love. It is simple, which I love. And, I got to eat beets, which I have never had fresh. I have only had pickled before and hated them. I topped my beets with butter salt and pepper.
