I want G to start posting his dinners (or any of his meals, really) because personally I find the behind the scenes stuff interesting in general, especially on other people's blogs. His lunches in particular are always something I enjoy hearing about, whereas I eat the same old salad after salad every day.
Tonight, however, I made a fairly quick dinner that I'm pretty proud of:
Last night I roasted a pan of parsnips, broccoli, and beets. I also threw a head of garlic in to roast, as well, because why not? I saved the beet greens for later. To think I ever used to throw those out! For shame. They may actually be one of my favorite greens lately. Unfortunately, they do tend to wilt fairly quickly so I cooked them up tonight with onions, garlic, and salt. I really love the beet flavor and add very little seasoning.
I boiled some white beans, and when they were done, I threw in two cloves of the roasted garlic, some salt, nooch, and chopped mushrooms and mashed them all together. Served on top of the greens with a liberal dousing of black pepper. This was very filling, super healthy, oil-free, really delicious, and fun to make. So happy to have leftovers of this simple, tasty dish.
Does anyone know if you can eat beet greens raw, though? How would you recommend them?
