My favorite way to eat beet greens is

1. steamed until wilted and served with a little vinegar poured over it.

2. A little less simple - sauté a couple of cloves of garlic in olive oil. Add beet greens and sauté until wilted. Add a little hot pepper (flakes, powder, fresh) and sauté a little more. Serve with lemon slices.

3. Chopped beet greens added to scrambled eggs make a gourmet dish.

4. You can make pesto with beet greens, oil, garlic. Serve on pasta or grilled halved zucchini.

When I was poor and a single mom, I used to go to the grocery store. One of the produce guys saved me beet greens that customers didn’t want. I ate tons of beet greens and loved them.
