If you ever buy fresh beetroot and throw away the stalks and the green part of it, do it no more! There is an easy way to prepare this part of the beetroot as a side dish.
Chop some garlic, wash and cut the stalks. In a pan, ad some olive oil and the garlic. Add the beetroot stalks and greens and sautee for about 5 minutes, until softened but still kind of crispy. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper, or some herbs if you wish. Serve warm.
