Roasted Beets with Greens in a Balsamic & Horseradish Glaze
Roasted beets with greens in a balsamic & horseradish glaze topped with crispy shoestring beet stems is amazing! Don’t miss dinner the night this dish is being prepared. Your taste buds will be so sorry. This recipe was inspired by my friends Wally and Jane. Originally they would use butter to prepare this delightful dish. To make it healthier I added the coconut oil instead of the butter.
I actually prepared this tasty dish at a friends in Northern Michigan. Accidentally the stems cooked a little too long and got a little crispy. (I’m sure it wasn’t because we had a little wine and might have gotten distracted). Well to our surprise, the crispy stems were just like crispy shoestring potatoes. I think we just added another dimension to this already delicious side dish. Most people discard the stems and leaves. There is so much nutrition in the stems and leaves. Don’t waste it.
