Beet Greens with Garlic

Several people I know, and I did this too before I knew better, throw the tops of the beets away and just cook the roots. The green parts of the beets are actually very delicious.

    just the leaves, or the stems, too? i love beets and hate to waste any part of them.

    Hi Rebecca, I'm the same way, I hate to waste any part of them, so yes I do put all the stems too.

    I also cook them the same way (much like I would make ginisang pechay), only with some ground beef or pork, and the usual onions and garlic. Love them when freshly picked.

    hi JMom! this is a great tip because I usually just use the balls and throw away the rest.
    you grow them? WOW! how I wish we have the weather for that. 'Laking tipid.
    regards from Holland and btw, chas did a great job on the design, me like it (^-^)

    Hi Manang, I do too love pickled beets. But even just plain boiled, the beet roots are delicious.

    THESS!!! kumusta ka na? How's the renovating going? hehe! kakatuwa ka, you use the balls? hihi! Having a garden is laking tipid talaga. I haven't bought veggies in about a month now!

    and thanks, I'm loving my new template too, especially this new commenting thing he did for me. Chas is really the best, ha?

    I'm so jealous of your home grown veggies! :) I would love to have my own stuff...maski konti lang. I live in a small flat in the city so no can do...that looks delicious!
