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)
