Sesame Mandarin Beet Greens

Sesame Mandarin Beet Greens

Wonderful light beet flavor paired with sweet tang from mandarins and rice vinegar plus the unctuous sesame oil and a slight pop from the sesame seeds. Delicious (and nutritious)!

I used to just toss the beet greens in the compost… never again, they are so good! Even my wife, who actually hates beets (I know… working on it), loves these beet greens!

I’d really like some “INSTRUCTIONS”: How long to cook greens; When and how to add Mandarin pieces (cooked or fresh? mixed in or sprinkled on top?). Couldn’t tell from photograph. Thank you.
