Beets and Greens

These were actually pretty good!

Turns out, cooking a beet is exactly like baking a potato. All you do is cut off the greens and their stems, coat the beets in olive oil, and bake them, in a covered and sprayed pan for about an hour at 350* Testing doneness is the same as a potato too - just stick it with a fork. Easy.

For the greens, I heated about 2 TBSP olive oil in a skillet, tossed in a couple cloves of minced garlic and about 1/4 c. diced onion. Then, tore the greens into 2-3" pieces (throwing out the big red stems), seasoned with sea salt and fresh ground pepper, and sauteed until done.
