  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 bunch greens from 3-4 beets chopped into small pieces, stems and leaves separated
  • ½ yellow onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • ½ Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat oil in 10-in skillet over medium heat. Add beet stems and onion and sauté until stems and onion have softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Stir in beet green leaves and chicken broth and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until beet greens have softened. Stir in apple cider vinegar and salt to taste.


  • Be sure to wash the greens before chopping them to remove any dirt.
