Recipe: Sauteed Beet Greens

I decided to make my marinated beets for a potluck I went to over the weekend and the recipe for marinated beets was one of my first blog posts.  I try and post many of my favorite recipes so I know where they are!

After marinating the beets I had all these beet greens sitting on my counter top and felt like I should do something with them. There were so many of them that I did not want to just throw them in the garbage.  So I sauteed  them Southern style like any other green.  

Almost anything tastes good cooked in bacon fat with onion and garlic!  Beet greens are no exception!  However what looked like a ton of greens on my counter turned out to not be much once I cooked it down.  It seems to have the same magical shrinking qualities of spinach, so what looked like enough to share turned out to be lunch!

 

2 pieces of bacon diced

1 med onion diced

3 cloves of garlic chopped

4 C of washed and chopped beet greens (or any green)

 

Saute the bacon until almost done, add the onion cook until tender add the garlic and cook for about 5 mins. Add the greens and cover.  Cook for about 20-30 mins on low heat and serve.  It smells as good as it tastes.

Add a little vinegar and/or red pepper at serving if you like that extra kick.

 

Here is a picture of beets two ways!
