    Dib's's Note:

    When making this dish from your garden or store bought greens, chooose only the young leaves and discard the older, tougher leaves. I like a shake or two of hot pepper flakes.

      Di, you are going to think I'm nuts, but this sounded so good, had to try it. Couldn't find any beet greens except some awful looking, with really old big leaves, soooo, I used some lovely nice fresh spinach! with canned baby beets. It turned out delicious!! the garlic, ginger and lemon are a great combination, I can hardly wait for spring to try it with nice fresh beets with young beet greens. Thanks for sharing, beets are one of our favourite veggies and we will enjoy this recipe often.

      Absolutely awesome and I even forgot the lemon. I have had this recipe in my cookbook since December and have been anxiously awaiting the first fresh beets at the farmer's market. This was well worth the wait.

      Really good. I had a HUGE bunch of fresh beets from the grocery store and wanted a way to cook the tops as well as the roots. The way the recipe is written, the root part doesn't get cooked much at all (perhaps it's written for canned beets) so I boiled my cubed beet roots until they were soft and then added them to the sauteed greens. We loved 'em, thanks for the recipe!
