Aromatic Creamed Beet Greens

Aromatic Creamed Beet Greens

I have expressed my admiration for spinach in previous posts, but this fall has produced a bounty of beets and beet greens. So I am switching my veneration away from spinach and towards the humble beet and beet greens.

People say beets taste like metal, mud, wood, even dirty socks. (Yes, I have friend who confessed that last one to me, which makes me laugh). Please stop hating on beets. They are delicious in so many ways.

Even if you really don’t like beets. Rather, even if you kind of hate them and possibly dread the thought of eating them, you’ll love this recipe. It’s an easy way — a first step of sorts — to gain some appreciation for the beet, by using the greens.

Palak Paneer-esque Hand-Held Pies

Palak Paneer-esque Hand-Held Pies

My love for Greek food spiced with Indian flavours is real and runs deep. I merge these cuisines’ flavour profiles often. These palak paneer-esque hand-held pies are a variation on novelle grecque food: traditional Greek food lightened up and gussied up with modern flavours. They are also a nod to the North Indian classic, Palak Paneer. Their inside texture is soft and creamy, packed with spinach and dotted with specks of cheese that look/taste a lot like paneer.
