What to do with beet greens?

After trying several recipes, we’ve finally found it: A beet green recipe we enjoyed so much that we’re looking forward to eating it again.

This is a simplified version of Silly Apron’s recipe, found here on Food52.

Serves 2

  • 3 bunches beet greens, red stems removed, rinsed, and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, grated
  1. Warm 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan. Add the garlic, cumin, and paprika. Stir a couple minutes.
  2. Add the beet greens and salt. Turn the heat to medium and stir to coat the greens with oil.
  3. Cover. Lower heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Stir and simmer another 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
  6. Drizzle greens with olive oil and top with a poached or fried egg.
