Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

TSLCBeets1

This easy beet recipe is like 2 meals in one. You first have the roasted beets and then the delicious sauteed beet greens. I have always enjoyed beets they are a very versatile vegetable from a topping on a salad or a great side dish. This recipe was enough for 2 people, you may double it if need be.

 3 large beets with greens

3 tbsp of Olive Oil

1/2 tsp of garlic powder

1/2 a red onion

1 tsp of honey

chopped nuts (I used pecans)

cooked bacon slices or bacon bits

Cut tops off of beets and thoroughly wash beets, set greens aside. Arrange beets in a glass dish, then coat with olive oil and sprinkle garlic powder over them. Bake beets in a preheated 350 degree oven until you can easily slice beets with a knife. Some will take longer depending on oven, but for 3 large beets it took about an hour. Once beets are done, remove from oven and you will need to remove the skin from the beets. The beets will definitely stain your hands so either wear gloves or be ready for red fingers. While the beets cool, add 2 tbsp of olive oil to a pan, and 1/2 a red onion (you can add more if you love onion). Chop greens down to 2-3 inch pieces and add to pan to cook with onion and olive oil. Once all mixed add in 1 tsp of honey, cover and let cook on medium heat until nice and tender. I put it all together in a bowl and topped with pecans and bacon. Enjoy!

  1. Judy, do you have any “Cooking for Two” recipes? I cook for just myself and my brother-in-law. I bought a small cooking for two cookbook off Amazon and it was a waste of money.

    • I don’t have any specifically for two but you can usually cut my recipes in half if you need to do so and this one is for 2 people. We will try to do more.

We enjoy your comments but due to the large volume we must delete comments often. We try to do this weekly and sometimes more often. Positive comments about a recipe you tried and loved are always welcome. Thank you so much for commenting here.
