Recipe with ingredients from our Market
We hear a lot about how much food is tossed into the trash in the US. Let’s try Root to Stalk – using all we can of vegetables! You can’t usually get the whole vegetable at the super market, but you can at our Farmers’ Market.
Lemon & Butter Braised Beet Greens (Recipe from Earthbound Farms Organic Foods) Choose leaves, 4 to 6 inches in length, for the mildest taste and most tender greens.
YIELD 4 servings greens
- 2tablespoons olive oil
- 1tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1garlic clove, thinly sliced
- 2lbs baby beet leaves, washed
- 1 -2teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
- Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet or Dutch oven over low heat, and add the garlic.
- Cook gently, stirring frequently, until the garlic is fragrant but does not take on any color.
- Add the moist greens, raise the heat to medium-high, and cover the pan. Cook until the greens wilt, about 2 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice.
- Remove the cover; if there’s any excess liquid, cook until it evaporates
- Toss the greens with the lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and serve hot.
