I have another healthy recipe for you. Two healthy vegetable recipes in one week?? I know, I know, but it’s the New Year and everyone wants good-for-you recipes right? This one is a great side dish, Pink Greens, better known as Sauteed Beet Greens. These greens make a quick and easy dish that pairs well with fish (we made Orange Roughy, a light white fish that worked perfectly). We squeezed fresh lemon over the top of the fish and the greens and it was a delicious pairing!

The reason this recipe is different from other saute recipes is the addition of the crushed red pepper flakes (that add a little heat) and the sugar (which caramelizes with the garlic). The combination makes a perfect sweet and fiery sauce. This recipe would work well with any type of Asian greens (bok choy, Chinese cabbage, pea shoots, tatsoi, etc.). For a list of all the Asian greens, this Saveur article is a great resource. Let me know if you try it and how it goes!
