Beet Greens

It’s still a while until beets will be in season but beet greens are good to go this time of year. Most people will use the beet and toss the greens but the greens are great in salads and stirfries, especially when they’re tender and new as they are at this time of year. They’re also really good for you. Super high in calcuim: 47 mg per cup (raw). They also have lots of potassium, magnesium, and beta carotene. All that, and they only contain 9 calories per cup!

Try this simple Sesame Wilted Beet Greens recipe from Canadian Living as an intro to beet greens.
