Simmered Beet Greens with Roasted Beets, Lemon and Yogurt

There’s nothing quite like using the beet in its entirety from root to leaf. This simple warm salad pairs the hearty simplicity of beets with a dead simple yogurt dressing for a lovely side that would go well with any main dish.


  • 2 bunches beets, with tops
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Cut the greens away from the beets, leaving about ¼” of stems. Scrub the beets and place in a baking dish or lidded ovenproof casserole. Add ¼” water to the dish. Cover tightly. Place in the oven and roast until tender (30-60 minutes).
  2. Cool beets until safe to handle. Trim away stems and remove skins. Cut in wedges and set aside.
  3. While the beets are in the oven, stem the greens and wash. Set aside.
  4. Heat oil in a large, wide skillet over high heat and saute the greens until just wilted (3-5 minutes). Season with pepper and lemon juice to taste.
  5. Stir the garlic into the yogurt and serve as a side dressing for the beets and greens, garnished with walnuts.
