Something New to try with Beets

President Obama's dislike for beets will no doubt ensure that beets remain at the bottom of the vegetable popularity rankings for the next four years. Nonetheless, here is an easy dish that the few remaining beet lovers should try.

Beet Greens with Roast Beets and Goat Cheese

  • 1 bunch of beets with greens intact
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Meanwhile, trim greens from beet bulbs, leaving about half an inch of the stem attached to each beet, Wash greens and scrub bulbs.
  2. Wrap each beet bulb in foil. Place bulbs on an oven tray and roast until tender, 45 minutes to one hour. Let beets cool.
  3. Once beets have cooled, peel the skin off. Chop beet bulbs into 1/2 inch pieces.
  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  5. Add beat greens and saute until they begin to wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve beet greens topped with roasted beets and goat cheese.
