Beet Greens & White Beans

Beet Greens and Beans

After making beet soup, I was left wondering what to do with the greens.  They looked great and I could not bare to throw them out so I decided to make a quick side with them.  Beans go great with greens and I had a can of Great Northerns in my pantry that was just the right pairing but really any bean would work.


  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 15.5 oz can Great Northern Beans drained & rinsed
  • Greens from 2-3 beets shredded
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1.  Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil over medium-high heat until tender.   About 5 minutes.
  2. Add beans to pan and cook 2-3 minutes until beans are heated through.  Tossing occasionally.
  3. Add shredded greens and cover for 3-4 minutes until wilted.
  4. Add vinegar, salt and pepper and toss.
  5. Serve hot.
