Breakfast

Sauteed beet greens and sliced tomato.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Shopping: none

Our favorite part of harvesting beets from the garden is eating the beet tops. They must be fresh, fresh, fresh. Then simply give them a rinse and toss them wet into a hot saute pan with extra-virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and maybe a splash of red wine vinegar. They are meaty and delicious. A big, fat Mortgage Lifter tomato seasoned with grated Parmesan makes a great side.

Looks tasty, but I hope a slice of toast or 2 is included. Just that for breakfast and I'd be starving again within the hour.

Tiffany, sometimes I can make a meal out of a single tomato.

Kat, see comment on the next post.
