My daughter created this recipe for Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. If you don't have small beets, roast the large ones and cut them up afterward.
2 pounds small beets
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 bunch spinach, chard or kale, stemmed and shredded
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 cup diced goat cheese
Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut off any beet stems. Place in a baking dish with about ¼ cup water. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until beets are tender. Cool.
Peel beets, cutting them in half or quarters, if needed. Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add spinach and garlic and toss together until spinach wilts. Add beets , balsamic vinegar and mix together.
Sprinkle with goat cheese and torn basil. Toss together until cheese is melted.
