Sautéed Beets

I have never been a huge fan of beets. I’ve tried many methods of cooking them but they never had the flavor I was looking for until yesterday. I was talking with a friend, she shared her recipe with me. I tried it last night and loved it. The sautéed beets are tender, buttery, and sweet. I cooked the greens along with the red beets and it made an easy and delicious side-dish.

Sautéed Beets

Serving Size: Serves 4 


  • 3 beets with tops attached (green leaves)
  • 3 Tablespoons butter or coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoons Celtic sea salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper


Cut beets off from stems and leaves and cut each in half. Place beets in large pot with water. Bring to a boil and boil until the beets are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove beets and after they have cooled a bit, peel them and them cut into small pieces. Also, at this time, chop up the leaves.

In a large saute pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the beets, greens, and salt. Saute for a few minutes until the greens have wilted. Sprinkle a bit of cracked pepper on top.
