veggie love no. 5: beet greens

I confess. I do not like beets. Not even the fresh-picked, organic gems that come in our CSA box. I’m working on it…

Beet greens are another story, however. First, they are easy on the eyes. Unlike the gnarled roots of their labor, the tops are delicate leafy ruffles of rich green trimmed in crimson. Also, their mild flavor bears no resemblance to their subterranean counterparts.
