As we officially embrace Fall we’ve been harvesting the last of our crops and cleaning up the garden. You might remember we were lucky enough to have eggplant, squash, tomatoes, peppers, cucumber and beets in our garden this Summer.

We love roasted beets. So, we added roasted beets to many of our salads this Summer since we had it in the garden. Of course, the beet root isn’t the only part you can eat. So, I also wanted to share what we did with the beet greens.

I can’t remember who had the great idea to cook the beet greens but I am happy we did. In all honesty it looks just like Swiss Chard so we figured what the heck. It’ll probably taste good. And we (maybe he) was right.

If you’ve decided to make sauteed beet greens make sure the beets stem are healthy and firm.

This recipe is a super simple recipe that’s only a couple of ingredients. Best all your not wasting anything and you have a delicious side dish in about 10 minutes. You can also use this recipe for lacinto kale and spinach.
