I put this under beet greens, but you can use any kind of greens you want in it. When we made it last we used it as a "clean out the fridge" recipe adding chopped radish greens, kale, spinach and chard. Really good as an appetizer or interesting veggie side!

Vegetable Pancakes

Beet Greens

This recipe is so flexible.  You can use any kind of greens you have on hand and it was originally for cabbage.  Soooo good!  I like to shred the veggies ahead of time and keep in the fridge.  Then right before eating, mix in the other stuff and fry.  Definitely check out the sauce, too!

Beet Green Crisps

Beet Greens

This roasting technique is delicious!  But only the leaves can get crispy, not the stems and roots so you can remove those and use them in a separate application if desired.  Otherwise throw them in, too, for a delicous beet dish with incredible sweetness.

1 bunch of beet greens, leaves removed from stems and baby roots (either reserved or added in), washed and dried

Easy Sauteed Beet Greens

We pretty much only ever make beet greens this way or simply steamed whole since they're so good cooked in simple recipes like this one. 

1 bunch beet greens (or just the greens from 1 full sized bunch of beets; full sized roots would not be used here)
1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic or garlic scapes
1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
