Beets are in season right now, and all the produce markets are proudly displaying beets of all colors. Here's a tip: when you're washing and peeling the beets, and you trim off the green leafy tops, don't toss them away!

The greens and the stems are edible, and make a great substitute for any green such as spinach, swiss chard, and bok choy. They can be steamed, sauteed, braised, added to soups, and eaten raw. They're yummy and full of vitamins, so don't waste them!
