Hi. Madeline here. Mom isn’t here to write this week so I’m taking over for now.

After seeing so many tops go to the compost, I tried something yesterday and it turned out pretty good! I’m not sure what to call it but many dishes don’t have names so it will just have to be called Beet Tops. Look forward to the next experiment: Carrot Tops! 🙂

Beet Tops
4-6 beets with tops
1 bunch green onions or 1 small onion
1 green garlic (opt.)
sauce:
1 cup chicken/vegetable broth
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp tamari
Boil beets in a small pot on the side or save in the fridge for later.
Heat large pan w/ olive oil, add chopped garlic and onion and soften. chop beet tops (and stems if desired), add and cover to wilt. adding a little water helps the wilting process.
mix sauce and pour over wilted greens, let simmer until tender and ready to eat.
serve immediately. approx. 4 servings
