Recipe

Baked Beets on Greens

What You’ll Need:

golden beets2 bunches red or golden beets with greens (6 to 8 beets)
2 teaspoons of olive oil
1 garlic glove, finely chopped
1 tablespoon water
salt to taste
black pepper

For horseradish dressing:
1/4 cup olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
5 teaspoon red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt

What To Do:
— Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
— Cut off beet greens an inch from top and set aside. Rinse beets, wrap in foil. Place directly on the oven rack with a baking sheet below to catch drips.
— Bake 45 to 75 minutes until the center of the beet is easily pierced with a knife. Let cool slightly.
— Rinse beet greens. If greens are large, cut into 1-inch strips. About 15 minutes before serving, heat the olive oil in a pan and lightly saute garlic.
— Add beet greens and water, cover, and steam for 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until greens are wilted and tender. Add salt and pepper to taste, then cover and set aside.
— Whisk horseradish dressing ingredients.
— Remove foil from beets and then remove skin. Trim off stem and cut beets into 1/2 inch cubes. Repeat with remaining beets. Place cubed beets in a bowl and toss gently with dressing.
— Place greens on plate and spoon beets on top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
