Beets for Boys and Girls

A few months ago I did a recipe called "Complete Beet Galette".  Faced with another bunch of beets and a hungry man, I devised two dishes from one main staple.  I had a complete beet salad with thinly sliced apricots on top and David had a complete beet sandwich with strips of local bacon.  Both results were memorable and delicious!


1 lb complete beets
1 tablespoon honey
apricots and/or bacon
olive oil

1. Chop beets and their greens into bit size pieces. 
2. Heat saute pan over medium heat with a swirl of olive oil
3. When hot, add beets, their greens and finely chopped onions and saute about 7 minutes. 
4. Turn off heat and stir honey into the veggies
5. Add a dash of salt to taste
6. Meanwhile cook bacon if making the bacon sandwich version
7. Toast bread if using or slice apricot if opting for that version
8. When beets are done prepare to your liking!
