Sauteed Beet Greens with Cannellini Beans and Garlic

Earlier this week I had a hankering for some of the beautiful beet greens that have been waving in the garden. I've never eaten or cooked with beet greens before, so I decided to try something simple. I sauteed some garlic and red pepper flakes in some olive oil, then tore the greens and wilted them down in the pan. Towards the end I added some creamy white cannellini beans for some protein. I served it with sides of roasted sweet potatoes and some red quinoa with tamari.

It was delicious, and very healthy - I'll plan on making this more in the future!
