Beet Greens Stir Fry | Beetroot Leaves Subzi

Today’s recipe is beet greens stir fry or subzi. Yes! You read it right stir fry made with beetroot leaves. There is a story behind how I came across these leaves and how I cooked with them. It was by chance that I came across these leaves in the grocery store. Almost everyone was discarding the leaves and only purchasing the beetroots.

Beetroot Greens

There were 2 ladies who were discussing about how nutritious these leaves are and how delicious they taste when cooked. I overheard the conversation and selected some leaves to purchase. But the guy at the counter gave it to me for free and said that no one buys these. I thought that no one knows that these leaves cab be cooked into a yummy stir fry.

I tried a simple recipe. I adapted the same red leafy amaranth recipe to cook these beetroot leaves. The dish turned delicious. Beet greens are packed in antioxidants, protein and low in cholesterol. Do try this healthy recipe and serve it with rice and curry.
