I’m proud of this dish.  It was delicious!  One thing is certain; shopping at the farmers market means you eat a multitude of produce.

Beets and Greens


  • Beets with greens
  • Potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Onions
  • Fennel Seed
  • Mustard Seed
  • White Beans
  • Walnuts, toasted
  • White/red wine



Separate beets from greens.  Wrap beets in tinfoil and roast with potatoes in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork.  Remove and let cool, then cut into bite sized pieces. (You can do this the night before.)

Separate stems from greens.  Chop finely.

Preheat a cast iron pan with some olive oil.  Add fennel and mustard seeds and saute until fragrant. (Cover the pan; mustard seeds will go flying!)  Add onion and beet stems.  Saute until onion is translucent.  Add beets, potatoes, and greens.  Cook until greens are wilted adding water/vegetable broth and a few splashes of wine to deglaze the pan.

Stir in beans and walnuts.  Heat through and serve.
