This is a tasty vegetarian side dish (my roommate who normally won't touch vegetables chowed down on this) combining mushrooms and beet greens steamed in a garlic-mirin sauce. This is also delicious served over rice, or with a little wasabi paste added at the same time as the Mirin.

Directions

  1. Wash and chop the beet greens, removing the stems.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a deep pot over medium-high heat, and then add the beet greens and garlic. Saute for one minute.
  4. Chop and add the green onions and cilantro.
  5. Add the Soy Sauce (I usually use low sodium) and Mirin, and stir,.
  6. Add the mushrooms, saute for 2 minutes.
  7. Put a lid on the pot, and allow everything to steam for 2-3 minutes, until the mushrooms release their liquid and are tender & juicy.
