Sides » Beets, Shoots & Leaves
March to the "beet" of JJ Gonson's drum and celebrate this glorious vegetable from root to leaf. A lifelong lover of beets, JJ shows how to use all 3 parts of this earthy, nutrient-rich vegetable in this quick and tasty dish. Blanched beet roots are sautéed with vinegar, sunflower oil, cilantro and lemon verbena (which JJ grows in her garden). The stems and leaves are quickly wilted in local sunflower oil and tossed with honey and vinegar. A healthy, delicious and beautiful spread.
