Beet greens are one of the top rated veggies to do precisely this! Even scoring better than kale. There’s actually a scale to measure a food’s ability to neutralize free radicals, the ORAC scale.
Sweet potatoes and arugula are also veggies at the top of the list of scavengers and I happen to have all of these superfoods for the market tomorrow. Just sayin’. As we all know, free radicals are molecules that cause damage to our cells and our DNA, leading to all sorts of diseases.
Beet greens are in the same family as chard and can be cooked the same way. I like to juice them.
I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers’ Market tomorrow, with beet greens, arugula, kale, sweet potatoes, baby turmeric, onions, hard red winter wheat.
You know how to bake the most amazing, sweet, caramelized, silky smooth sweet potato, right? One hour with the oven on, then turn it off and leave them in there another hour. I bake the BIG ones at 450 and the mediums at 350 or 400 depending on how medium they are.
