Eat Your Beet Greens: Recipe

Eat Your Beet Greens: Recipe

Organic Beets at the Farmers Market

Organic Beets at the Farmers Market

Although I’ve long been a fan of roasting beets (not to mention pickling them), after disposing of the beet greens several times, I thought it quite wasteful and set out to make a side dish with them. I soon found that I almost enjoyed the beet tops more than the beets themselves, and I’ve never tossed them out since.

While the beetroots are certainly a healthy choice, packing quite a dose of folate, vitamin C, manganese, potassium, and fiber, the beet greens are an excellent source of iron, and provide a good serving of vitamins A, B, C, and K.

The deep violet-red betalain pigments from the beetroot and the beet stems have been shown to have high antioxidant properties and are being heavily researched in the prevention of cancers. The beet greens are a rich source of green chlorophyll which has been shown as an effective in the prevention and treatment of liver, skin, and colon cancer.

According to research from Dole Fresh Vegetables, there are 21 “Top Salad Cities” in the United States. Drawn from 18 months of internal research, Dole found that residents in the cities on their list may actually eat more salad per person compared to the national average, or they may be more willing to experiment with new salad blends or serve salad as a main course.

While somewhat obvious foodie cities like Los Angeles and New York City make the list, other less likely metro area, like barbecue meccas Dallas and Kansas City. More and more Americans are looking to raw fruits and vegetables,  especially in salads as a way to lose weight and boost their health. Plus, eating more greens can be a great way to support your local, organic small-scale farmers.
