It's rare in my household to discard parts of vegetables. When buying organic produce I reuse "scraps" (leftover goodies) to make my bone broth because they contain loads of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Beets are root vegetables that have long greens leaves that are slightly bitter but edible and delicious when sautéed. So, don't toss them! Give them a try.
Here's what to do:
Drizzle some good quality extra virgin olive oil in your pan, sauté some minced garlic and onions, optional. Chop up the greens and add them to the pot. Sauté for 3-5 minutes until wilted. Spice it up with sea salt, black pepper, and a dash of cayenne pepper.
