"Like candy"

I can't take all the credit for this.
My wonderful sister-in-love made this for us on New Years' Eve.
(do you have a sister-in-love? it's a sister-in-law who you love so so soooo much.)
It's now my new favorite.
Roasted beets and steamed, sauteed beet greens.
A perfect winter dish.
First...peel and dice the beets. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper and a sprinkling of sugar.
Place on a lined pan and roast at 400 until soft.

Take those luscious beet greens and steam them.
Then toss in olive oil and saute for about 2 min.

Mix the beets and greens together in the pan to warm.
Can you say "deeee--lish"?
The best thing?
Tell your children it's like candy.
They'll eat it. I promise.
(thanks, Helen (my sister-in-love)

Yummo! This is probably one of my favorite things ever. Love love love beets. I just discovered how much I love beet greens too. Delish. Let's make this when we are out there this fall. Yay! My mom calls Matt her "son-in-love" :)
