Delicate beet greens have a surprisingly sweet and mild flavor that appeals to people who love spinach or chard. Beet greens are often the best greens to introduce to children or others who might be wary of the flavor of more assertive or bitter cooking greens. They cook just as quickly as spinach, and the natural sugars in the plant nicely sweeten up the finished dish.

Cooking Tips & Times

Most cooking greens shine with simple preparation. Here are a couple of additional tips for beet greens:

Beet greens wilt quickly, so take care not to overcook them. We like to sauté them for a mere 2-3 minutes, and stop cooking while they are still bright green.

Green up any soup you are making by tossing in beet greens during the last 3-5 minutes of simmering.

Taste the beet greens before adding salt. They naturally contain more sodium than other greens.

Try raw beet greens in salads.
