Very Easy




  • Clean the beet greens and stems thoroughly in cold water. Remove the leaves from the stems; coarsely cut the stems into 1-inch pieces and set aside.
  • Roughly chop the beet greens and set aside. Use a non-stick skillet and heat the olive oil over medium heat until it shimmers.
  • Add in the diced onions and saute until the onions turn light golden - about 8 minutes. Don't burn the onions, lower the heat if necessary. Add in the beet stems and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Next, add in the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, the thinly sliced cabbage and the 1/4 cup of water. If you reduced the heat to low, raise it to medium-high, stirring to combine all the ingredients.
  • Saute this vegetable mixture until the cabbage and beet stems are tender - about 5 to 8 minutes and the water is mostly evaporated; season with a pinch or two of salt and pepper.
  • Meanwhile, bring a small pot of salted water to boil and blanch the beet greens for 1 minute. When the beet greens are bright green, drain them and add the blanched greens to the onion/cabbage saute. Taste and adjust your seasonings, adding more salt and freshly ground pepper as needed.
  • Serve hot over smashed new potatoes.
