This is for a friend who loves Beets.

I found an awesome beet recipe that was at my house. It is very healthy for you and you will get a good source of phytonutrients within these beets.

 

Roasted and Sautéed Beets-

 

Ingredients-

 

1 bunch of beets with greens

 

1.4 cup of olive oil

 

2 cloves of garlic- minced

 

3 tablespoons of chopped onion or chopped leeks

 

Sea salt & pepper to taste

 

T tablespoon of red wine/ or balsamic vinegar

 

1 tsp. of cumin

 

1 tsp. of basil

 

1 lemon juiced

 

Directions-

 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Wash the beets thoroughly, leaving the skins on, and remove the greens. Rinse greens, removing any large stems, and set aside. Place the beets in a small baking dish or pan and toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Cover, and bake for about 45- 50 minutes. If a knife can slide easily through the beets, then it is done.

When the beets are ready, heat the remaining oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, herbs, onion, and cumin. Take the beat greens and cut them up in pieces and add them in the pan. Add the wine and sauté. Season with salt & pepper. You can serve the greens and the beets with some fresh lemon juice and some extra olive oil. It tastes very fresh and great with fish, meats, or just as is.
