Honey Beet Greens

From Lynne Wilson

Here is a simple recipe you can make in a saute pan right on the grill while doing other summertime cooking. It is a great accompaniment for chicken or steak.


3 Tbsp. butter, divided
1 cup whole walnuts
2 bunches Beet Greens
2 Tbsp. honey
4 cloves garlic
½ tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. salt


Shell whole walnuts,and mince garlic.

Wash beet greens thoroughly and pat dry. Chop into bite-sized pieces. Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Before the butter becomes brown, add walnuts. Coat walnuts in the butter, then add honey and fold until evenly coated.

Remove walnuts from pan. In the same pan, add the rest of the butter (2 Tbsp.) and the beet greens. Saute greens for 1 minute, then add the rest of the ingredients. Reduce heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes, until greens are tender.

Pour into a bowl, top off with the walnuts and mix evenly.
