Whe I read the title of this recipe and copied it, I thought it said "Green BEAN". It wasn't until I transferred it here and started fitting it into the variopus categories that I realized it was "Beet Greens"! Well, I'm going totry it eventually with green beans! Adapted from source: Alton Brown

Absolutely delish, made with beet greens.
I'll admit, I only made this recipe because I bought some beets with the leaves attached and didn't really know what to do with them. I'm glad I tried this, though! It is really, really tasty, and it's very easy to put together. I'm sure it would be great with other types of greens (or even green beans :) ). Thanks for posting.
