Don’t toss the leaves! The greens and the stems are edible, and make a great substitute for any leafy green such as spinach or swiss chard. They can be steamed, sauteed, braised, added to soups, and eaten raw. Besides supplying good amounts of protein, phosphorus, and zinc, beet greens are also a great source of fiber. Packed with antioxidants, they’re high in vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese.
