HELP QUICK! - Fresh beets

smilingal | Jul 1, 2010 02:49 PM

Never made them - have been reading about using the greens as well - but does that mean the thick red stalks? I wouldn't think so. What do I do? with the stems? beets? I read to wilt the greens in boiling water then mix with carmelized onions and garlic and mix in with pasta - that sounds good - but couldn't I wilt the greens and mix those in the olive oil with the onions and garlic as well? Again - do I just take off the leaves from the stems? This doesn't seem to leave a lot to wilt!!
