Here is a quick and easy side dish.  I used beet greens here, but any greens would do such as turnip greens, collard greens, or mustard greens. Note that I put a lot of pictures in the post for how easy this recipe is, but every bit helps right? lol.   🙂

Gather Up:

  • A couple of bunches of beet greens
  • Three to four cloves of garlic
  • 1-1/2 tbsp olive oil*
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper

*Note: This recipe calls for olive oil; however, we do not recommend heating olive oil above medium-low heat.  If cooking any hotter, we recommend expeller-pressed coconut oil.

Cut the beet greens from the stems.

Heat a pot of water to boiling.  Throw in beet greens.  Boil for a couple of minutes.

Remove greens from boiling water and put into a bowl of ice water.

In the meantime, heat olive oil and garlic in a skillet on medium-low.

Squeeze the water from the greens and add to the garlic/olive oil mixture.

Toss in the salt and pepper and mix and heat well.  Serve!
