Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

"Beetroot (US Beets) is not one of my DH's favorite veggie. In our local newspaper was a recipe that I just had to try as I love beetroot but don't get to eat them very often unless I go to a restaurant. If you like beetroots then you will love this recipe."

Ready In:
1hr 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C). Wash beets thoroughly leaving the skins on and remove the greens.
  • Rinse greens, removing any large stems and set aside. Place the beets in a small baking dish or roasting pan, and toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. (If you want to peel the beets, it is easier to do so once they have been roasted).
  • Cover and bake for 45 to 60 mins, or until a knife can slide easily through the largest beet.
  • When the roasted beets are almost done, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Add the garlic and onions, and cook for a few minutes.
  • Tear the beet greens into 2 to 3 inch pieces, and add them to the skillet.
  • Cook and stir until greens are wilted and tender.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Serve the greens as is, and the roasted beets sliced with either red-wine vinegar, or a knob of butter.

    The beet roots turned out really well, but man those greens were bitter. Probably the fault of the greens rather than the recipe.

    this is the best way to eat beets, the only way i eat them (except on the sad occasion when the greens aren't available). roasting them not only makes them sweeter and tastier, but also much easier to slip the peels off. thanks for sharing!

    I loved the combination. I used a combination of red and yellow beets that had been previously roasted. The greens were cooked and the greens and then mixed in the diced beets. The red wine vinegar was used instead of butter. This made a very eye catching dish.
