THE BEET GOES ON
4 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
3 cups of spinach
4 medium beets (about 12 oz. without greens), trimmed, peeled, halved, and sliced
3-4 cups lightly packed stemmed beet greens
1/2 cup of strawberries, sliced
1/3 cup of pumpkin seeds (I toasted mine on the stove)
1/4 cup walnuts
1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
Brie cheese (goat cheese is great, too)
Chopped mint (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper
Heat 1 tbs. of the olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the beets and stir until coated in the oil. Add 1/4 cup water, cover, and cook until the beets are almost tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Scatter the greens over the beets and sprinkle with a couple pinches of salt. Cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until the beets and beet greens are tender, 8-10 minutes.
Remove from the heat and drizzle with the vinegar and the 1 tbs. olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
In a large bowl, add your spinach and onions followed beets and green beans, cheese, strawberries, nuts/seeds. Top with mint, olive oil, salt and pepper
Mix well and enjoy!
