The healthiest way to cook beet greens

“Quick Boiling” is the healthiest way to cook beet greens because it frees up some of the unwanted acids and allows them to leach out into the water. While boiling is not considered the best way of cooking most vegetables, beet greens are one of only three vegetables we recommend boiling because of its acid content. The other two are Swiss chard and spinach. After boiling any of these three vegetables, be sure to discard the cooking water. Do not drink it or use it for stock because it will contain the unwanted acids leached from the vegetables
