Mmm, beets -- one of my favorite veggies! :)
When I prepare fresh beets, I chop off the greens and set them aside.
Scrub the beets themselves, cut off their "tails", cut larger ones into
chunks, and put them in a pot with just enough boiling water to cover
them. Simmer until the beets start to soften. While they're simmering,
I rinse and de-stem the greens. Once the beets start to soften, I put
the greens in on top of the beets. By the time the beets themselves are
done, the greens have also cooked. Dish out a pile of beet chunks
topped with beet greens -- ah, heaven! :)
No spices, no herbs, just wonderful beet & beet green taste. And when
the cooking water cools, it's pretty tasty, too.
Can you tell I like beets? :)
