Ingredients

  • 4 yellow or red beets, including the greens of the beets
    Garlic powder
    Fresh ground black pepper
    1/2 to 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    2 cloves garlic, chopped

Preparations

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Peel and slice beets to approximately 1/4-inch thickness
  • Lightly spray a cookie sheet with olive oil, lay beet slices out on cookie sheet
    in a single layer.
  • Sprinkle with garlic powder and black pepper to taste.
  • Bake in oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until beets start to brown and
    shrivel very slightly. (They will be soft when testing with a fork.)
  • While beets bake, wash beet greens and chop them into large pieces.
  • In a saute pan, add a small amount of olive oil and toss in the 2 cloves of fresh
    chopped garlic, brown slightly, then add beet greens and cook until they are limp.
