I LOVE watching The Kitchen on Food Network! #ICAG (If you know, you know!)

A recent episode focused on reducing food waste by cooking all parts of the vegetable.

For example, I now peel and chop broccoli stems and steam, roast, or sauté them with the florets.

They are crunchy, nutritious, and most importantly delicious!

Now that beets are in season, I decided to give the greens a try.

I’ll admit I was skeptical. To me, they don’t look all that appealing especially with their dirt coating!

But I decided to trust my fellow food bloggers and keep an open mind.

They did not steer me wrong!
