Whole Beet Skillet

Ingredients:

4-6 medium beets with fresh greens
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
1-2 teaspoons ginger root
1-2 teaspoons honey (optional)

Directions:

4-6 medium beets with fresh greens
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
1-2 teaspoons ginger root
1-2 teaspoons honey (optional)

Cut greens off beets, leaving about 1 inch of greens on beets. Place beets in large saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until beets are tender when pricked with a fork, 15-30 minutes, depending on size. While beets are cooking remove stem from beet greens. Chop stems in 1 inch pieces. Chop greens separately. Drain the cooked beets and rinse with cold water. When beets have cooled enough to handle, slip peels off with fingers. Cut beets in slices. In saucepan sauté stems in 1-2 tablespoons butter until tender. Add greens and sauté until green and just tender. Add sliced beets and heat through.

Stir in lemon juice, ginger root, and honey and serve immediately.
