Roasted Beets and Beet Greens

Submitted by: ADDICE


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 bunch beets with greens
    2 Tbs olive oil, divided
    2 slices bacon
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tablespoons chopped onion
    salt and pepper to taste
    1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C). Wash the beets and remove the greens. Rinse greens, removing any large stems, and set aside. Place the beets in a small baking dish or roasting pan, and toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Cover, and bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until a knife can slide easily through the largest beet.
When the roasted beets are almost done, heat the bacon in a skillet over medium heat, cook until almost crispy. Remove bacon, reserve 2 Tbs of grease. Add the garlic and onion, and cook for a minute. Tear the beet greens into 2 to 3 inch pieces, and add them to the skillet. Cook and stir until greens are wilted and tender. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the greens as is, and the roasted beets sliced with red-wine vinegar.
