Roasted Beets with Balsamic Beet Greens


If you haven’t guessed, I am obsessed with beets!  Perhaps it is my Eastern European heritage?  Whatever it is, I can’t get enough.

Most people have never tried a fresh roasted beet and I am here to tell you that it is the bomb!  Do not be discouraged by the canned beets your parents forced you to eat.  This is a whole new dimension and every skeptic I have introduced thus far is raving.  One of my clients calls it “the beef of the vegetable world”.  The flavor is nutty, rich and sweet.  The health benefits are numerous.


3-4 Roasted Beets, cut into bite size pieces

1 Bunch beet greens, chopped (stems and greens separated)

1 Onion, chopped

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1 Tbl Balsamic vinegar

2 Tbl Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Goat cheese


-Sautee onion and beet green stems in olive oil until softened (5-7 minutes). Seasoning with S&P. Add in beet greens until wilted.

-Toss with the beets, walnuts, balsamic and drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper.

-Top with crumbled goat cheese.
