Author: Canadian Living

Beet greens are as valuable as beets. Just treat them like spinach or Swiss chard. A simple addition of sesame oil or lemon juice enhances their flavour.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 8 cups loosely packed beets with greens (about 2 bunches)
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Method

In small skillet over medium heat, toast sesame seeds until golden, about 3 minutes; set aside.

Trim stems from small young beet greens or remove centre rib from larger mature beet greens.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beet greens, garlic, ginger and salt; cover and steam until greens are wilted, about 3 minutes. Drizzle with sesame oil; sprinkle with reserved sesame seeds.
