The part that took the longest? Washing the beet greens — those suckers are muddy! All I did for lunch was shred some pre-cooked sous vide chicken breast, nuke some leftover garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes, and saute in lard some beet greens with a diced shallot.
Whenever I get turnips or beets in my CSA box, the attached newsletter always tells me to eat the turnip/beet greens first because they go bad quickly. Normally, the quantity is too small to make a dinner side for the family so I end up tossing the wilted greens at the end of the week. However, when you’re just serving one person, the size is perfect!
