Sautéed Beet Greens
Hi Everyone, it’s January and I don’t know about you but I am looking for ways to get more healthy ingredients onto my dinner plate.
These Sautéed Beet Greens are a nutritious side dish to add to any meal.
I love beetroot, don’t get me wrong, but between the two, I lean more to these lovely greens.
I love their crunchy texture and there’s something “life-giving” to eating a plate full of greens.
I make these Sautéed Beet Greens with regular olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper, so they are seasoned simply – they don’t need more than that.
Sautéed Beet Greens is one of our Fall-inspired recipes, to see all of our “Fall” recipes on LLS, visit here.
