I know, this sounds like something you might find on the Beverly Hillbillies. (remember those days?) Anything with the word ‘greens’ in it sounds so…southern I guess.
My mom makes these dried beet greens from her garden beets every year and we tend to gobble them all up.
They are light and crisp, a lot like the seaweed sold as snacks everywhere you look now.
This year, I thought I would try them myself. (Just like I tried her ginger pickles myself. I think I am turning into my mother!)
They did not come out very pretty.
I may have over salted them. Then the salt blended with the water on the leaves and gave it a kind of salt flats look about it.
But if you happen to have some beets and you don’t want to just toss the green leaves in the trash, here is a real easy way to turn them into a snack.
Just lay them on a baking sheet. I suggest spraying with non stick oil first. They do like to stick.Then just sprinkle with some salt and pop into a 350 degree oven. Bake about 10 minutes. Check and see if they look flat and crispy. If so, they are done. Thats it. Quick and easy, salty-crispy with loads of vitamins.
