Evidently when I thought I harvested all the beets last fall I missed one, or perhaps I left one behind because it was too small to bother with. Well, over the winter it grew and grew and grew. I’ve had my eye on the healthy looking greens for awhile now and finally decided it was time to use them.
I cooked the greens and used them to make black bean and brown rice patties. Ingredients for the patties were:
- cooked beet greens
- refried black beans
- brown rice flour
- chopped onion
- cumin powder
- chili powder
- garlic powder
- bread crumbs
The patties were cooked in a skillet greased with olive oil and served with sliced tomatoes on a bed of arugula.
Faye loathes the very thought of salad for breakfast, but sometimes I am able to slip little bits of salad onto the breakfast table with no mention or objection.
