    I comboed this with another recipe & added blackforest bacon left over from breakfast. It was delicious either way. You can't really go wrong with garlic & greens! (Also, I'm surprised seasoning with salt + pepper wasn't on here?)
    great recipe. luv beet greens!! They have a hint of sweetness and are so tender. Used Extra Virgin olive oil that I had infused with a few dried red peppers. Gave it just a hint of heat. Perfect. I would put less oil next time tho. I didn't weigh the greens tho so maybe I used less than the recipe specified.
    It was my first time using the beet greens. Simple for the first time is the way to go. Love the taste. Definitely make sure to clean properly. Might get some dirt particles left over. But I think I love beet greens now.
    Sautéed onion and garlic. Added the beet greens and lemon zest. Braised it all in some Marsala and chicken stock. Family loved it. Gave this 5 stars because it was a good jumping off point.
    You've got to be kidding!. That's a good beginning but how about adding some 'interest' like kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, a tiny bit of red pepper flakes and the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Also great is adding the raw corn kernels from one cob to add some color and sweetness. Now your really cookin!
    Love this recipe it was delicious, but would cut the oil down next time.
    I did everything the recipe said but added red pepper flakes and a little cayenne pepper. Very good! I served it with I think Giada's Parmasian Chicken (great crust) and Melissa's Roasted Broccoli, Yum-o!! I used the beets for Guys Beet and Goat Cheese salad my first encounter with beets and my husband and father hate beets but loved they loved the salad! Thanks food network!
    Easy, healthy, and tasty! I browned the garlic until crispy & left it in the pan with excellent results.
    I used baby beet greens from our garden and cooked the stems first then threw the greens on top for a minute. Everyone loved them, even my 11 year old son!
