Roasted beets and sautéed beet greens By Winter Rosebudd for Calolea Olive Oil

#1#2There is nothing like fall root vegetables drizzled with good olive oil and roasted. Simple as that!! I must admit, this recipe was inspired by Martha Stewart’s baby beet recipe. She uses a mix of different colored baby beets, but I prefer the big fat red ones, they are sweeter! I understand there are quite a few beet haters out there, but let me tell you, I have converted a few haters with this recipe. Most beet haters grew up with their mothers serving them slimey canned beets and in my opinion, that is not food.
Please go buy some fresh organic beets from your farmers market and be sure the greens on top are nice and fresh. Preheat the oven to 350. Wash them well, the beets and the tops. Cut the tops off, and reserve the greens and a few inches of the stems.
You can scrub the beets or peel them, then cut them in 3/4″ thick wedges. Chop up your greens coarsely, with the stems and set aside from the beets.
Toss the beet wedges in a bowl with a big drizzle of Calolea Tuscan Blend. Spread them onto a big piece of foil and toss a pinch of course sea salt and fresh ground pepper on top. Stick them in the oven about 25-30 minutes until fork tender.
Preheat a large skillet to medium/high with a couple tablespoons of olive oil. Put your chopped greens and 2 cloves of minced garlic on top.
Let them settle for about a minute, then splash in one tablespoon of water and one tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Gently turn the greens a couple times with tongs, reduce heat to medium low and cover for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve the beets nestled on top of a bed of greens and sprinkle with crumbled gorgonzola.#4
We have done these with a big spoonful of fresh Burrata cheese on top and they where even better. Drizzled with Calolea Blood Orange Olive Oil and Calolea 18 yr. aged Balsamic Vinegar, of course! This dish goes great with a simple roasted chicken and a fluffy green salad.

Bon Appetit!
