We have found that it is best to prepare the beet greens within a day or two of purchase, as they begin to wilt rather quickly.

Begin by cutting off the leaves and stems of the beets close to the top of the root.  Place the roots in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator for future use. (To enlarge the photo of the beets and to see nutritional information, click on the photo or link.)

Thoroughly wash the leaves and stems, allowing them to drain for a few minutes.  Cut the leaves and stems into bite-sized pieces and place in a covered glass pot for cooking on the stove-top or in a covered ceramic or glass baking dish for cooking in a microwave oven.

If cooking on the stove-top, make sure that there is a little liquid in the bottom of the glass pot.  The water from washing should be enough, or add about a tablespoon of water.  Cook on low heat until the beet greens are cooked.  We prefer the stems to be a little crispy, which takes about 5-7 minutes.

If cooking in a microwave oven, no additional water is needed.  Cook on "high" for about 3-5 minutes until tender.

Serve with lemon wedges.  Enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-17)
