Roasted Golden Beets and their Greens with Garlic Orange Dressing

Golden Beets and their greens

This week we roast the first of Ranui Garden garlic in the same casserole as the beets we also find in our CSA box. The garlic roasts into buttery goo and at the same time subtly infuses the beets with garlic essence. This recipe for roasted golden beets and their greens with garlic orange dressing features both the beets and their greens in one delicious dish.

Mellow roasted garlic orange vinaigrette seasons both the bed of warm sautéed beet greens underneath and the sliced roasted beets nestled on top. Sweet roasted beets juxtaposed with their barely bitter greens and tangy salty feta cheese, all in the same bite–sweet, sour, salty and bitter–yum!

Make this recipe as soon as you get the beets, because beet greens deteriorate more quickly than other greens. The cheapatarian in me hates to see them go to waste.

Some of the roasted garlic goes in the garlic orange dressing–the extra cloves are great spread on crackers or crostini.
