Warm Orzo Salad with Beets & Greens
by the parsley thief

Ingredients

1/2 pine nuts
12 ounces medium beets and greens attached
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 ounces orzo
3 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Method

Toast the pine nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat until they begin to brown. Watch carefully, as they will burn in a flash. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl to cool.

Remove the beet greens and reserve. Peel the beets and chop them into bite-size pieces. Remove the stems from the beet greens and slice the leaves into strips. Wash the greens thoroughly to remove any grit.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the red onion and garlic and cook until the onion is tender and golden brown, 10-15 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the beet greens. Cover and cook, tossing occasionally, until the greens are wilted, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the beets in a pot of boiling salted water until just tender, 10-12 minutes. Remove the beets from the pot using a slotted spoon and set aside.

Return the water to a boil and add the pasta. Cook until al dente; drain.

Transfer the orzo to a bowl, add the beets, pine nuts, beet greens, and crumbled feta, and toss. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.



Congrats Tami! You won a copy of the Food52 cookbook :)
