Fall is a lovely time to be in the kitchen. At our local Farmer’s Market this weekend, I came home with a lovely bunch of red beets which had long and very fresh greens. I had previously seen a Lara Calder, French Food at Home episode, in which she used a cooking method I had never seen done with beets. This was a great side dish for Pork Chops with Rice Burgundy.
Beets are available in bunches (tops and leaves attached), or roots only. Pick small to medium bulbs that are smooth, round, and devoid of any soft spots. There should be a slight stub of stem left; if not, they may have been trimmed to remove spoilage on the stem. Avoid beets with rough spots, which may indicate toughness.
This wonderful Roasted Beets with Sauteed Greens recipe, comments, and photos were shared with me by Karen Calanchini, Food Stylist and Photographer, of Redding, CA.
