This is a very simple recipe but most people don’t think to put the whole plant together in one dish. Served this way they have great texture and flavor. The cook time is long but if you plan ahead it’s well worth it, Beets are a superfood! Cookbook: Plant Pure Nation by Kim Campbell
1 bunch of beets with their greens
1 onion, sliced
4 garlic cloves, minced
5 ounces of spinach
1 Tbl red wine vinegar
2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Wash the beets thoroughly, leaving the skins on and removing the greens. Rinse the greens, removing any large stems, and set aside.
Wrap each beet in tinfoil and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, or until tender. Remove from oven and let sit until cool enough to handle.
Remove skin from the beets and cut into 1 inch cubes. Set aside.
In a skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the onion and garlic in a small amount of water. Add beet greens and spinach and cook until wilted and tender.
Place the beet cubes and cooked greens in a serving bowl and toss well with the red wine vinegar, maple syrup, salt, and pepper. Serve warm.
