Oxmoor House JANUARY 2005

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup greens and 1 teaspoon feta cheese)

Ingredients

  • 11 cups coarsely chopped beet greens (about 1 pound beets with greens attached)

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

Preparation

1. Rinse beet greens; drain well. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beet greens; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until greens wilt. Reduce heat to low; add oregano and pepper.
