Cut beets from greens, reserving greens. Wash beets and place in a small ovenproof dish. Add ½ inch water. Cover tightly with foil and bake 35-40 minutes or until tender enough to pierce with a sharp knife. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Rub off skins, and thinly slice beets.
Strip beet greens from stems and wash thoroughly. Coarsely chop greens. Measure 1 cup chopped greens. (Reserve remaining greens for another use — they’re a delicious side dish sautéed in olive oil with a little salt and pepper and enjoy with GET FIT Turmeric Rotis)
