Fresh Beet Greens

There’s a simple technique that is used for fresh beet greens, kale, and broccolini. Here’s the template:

  1. Clean and prep
  2. Blanche
  3. Ice water bath
  4. Saute

Here’s what it looks like with fresh beet greens from the farmer’s market.

Must be cleaned and all icky leaves discarded
Remove stems
Bring to a boil with plenty of salt!
Blanche for 2 minutes until tender
Cool blanched greens quickly
Use a slotted spoon to remove from the water
Season with fresh garlic and spring onions
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat
Saute for a minute or two
Rough chop cooled greens
Saute together and season with S&P

I have overcome depression, escaped from Crazytown, and discovered contentment in life. I love humor, cooking, vintage everything (it seems), and a healthy dose of travel, style, fashion, and beauty.

  1. Lol. Went to the farmer’s market yesterday and bought some beets. I made a comment about wishing I knew how to do something with the leaves instead of throwing them out. Then I come across this! Thank you!!! ❤
