Sautéed Beets & Swiss Chard Greens

Cooked in butter and wine, this comforting side dish makes use of both flavorful beets and beet greens.

4-6 Chioggia beets with greens
1 bunch rainbow Swiss chard
3 tablespoons butter
1 shallot
2 tablespoons dry white wine
2 tablespoons water
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Crumbled goat cheese (optional)

1. Scrub and peel beets. Remove the greens and chop coarsely. Set the greens aside in a large prep bowl. Slice beets into ¼-inch rounds. Remove the ribs from the Swiss chard and coarsely chop and toss into bowl with the beet greens.

2. In a large sauté pan, melt butter. Sauté shallots. Add beet rounds to the shallot butter mixture. Crack some pepper over the beets and a toss in a pinch of salt. Reduce heat and sauté beets, turning over occasionally to ensure even cooking.

3. Cook for about 15 minutes or until beets begin to glaze and become tender; add greens and chard. Sauté for about 5 minutes, then add wine and cover. Cook until greens are wilted, adding water if necessary. Allow liquid to be mostly absorbed into greens, adjust seasonings. Garnish with fresh-cracked pepper and crumbled goat cheese, if desired.
