      This is perfect. DD1 (5 years old) also liked it quite a bit. It was my first time trying beet greens and I'm glad I chose this recipe. I used organic beet leaves off the beets that came in our weekly organic local produce basket, grey sea salt, a perfect salt, freshly ground black pepper, a little organic apple cider vinegar but not sure I would add vinegar another time, & organic local free range eggs (perfect tasting eggs where we have seen how they live on their farm). I'd like to make this again insha Allah (God willing).

      Wow! This was my first time eating beet greens and honestly, I was surprised because they tasted so good! I was thankful to have this easy recipe too. The only thing I didn't add was vinegar. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      These were delish! My cousin gave me the greens from her very lush garden and I cooked them for about 20 minutes, used seasoned rice vinegar, (the sweet kind), and my husband and I polished them off in one meal! I didn't use the eggs. These were some of the best greens I've ever had, likely a split between a great recipe and good gardeners! YUM!
