beetroot leaves {nothing goes to waste}

There was a time when I would discard beetroot leaves.
These days I don't let them go to waste.
They have a flavor similar to kale and Swiss chard.
Cooked or raw, beet greens are very rich in vitamins and minerals.

Try to select beet greens that have a dark, green color and fresh looking beet roots attached.

Cut most of the stem and give them a good wash.

Sautee them with extra virgin olive oil, purple onion,
garlic, balsamic vinegar and pine nuts.

Yesterday, I served them for lunch with a side of edamame.
