Get Your Beet Greens

Turn an unloved part of the vegetable into a delicious side dish.

A few months ago I offered a recipe for "beets and sweets" -- roasted sweet potatoes and beets. I promised a recipe for the beet greens that many would throw away - well I'm here now to deliver. (If you made the beet latkes on Chanukah you may have had some leftover then too). Many supermarkets sell beets with the greens already removed, but if you shop at specialty vegetable stores, farmers markets or organic shops you're more likely to get them still attached.
