1 bunch red beets with nice greens on them
peel & chop beets, wash and chop greens seperately

1 head of swiss chard, preferably red, chopped, stems
and all

2 cloves garlic minced
1 half a sweet onion, chopped

2 yellow beets, peeled and chopped
1 turnip, peeled and chopped
olive oil
salt, pepper
2 t nutmeg

1/2 to 1 c cooked grains (barley, brown rice, etc...anything works)

Heat oven to 500 degrees. Toss the peeled red beets, yellow beats, and turnip in olive oil to coat and roast for 35-40 minutes until a fork goes into them easily. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile while beets are cooking, get a big pot and sautee the onions and garlic in olive oil over medium high heat. Add the greens, stems and all and sautee till tender and wilted down. At the very end, salt and pepper to taste and mix in the nutmeg.

Assemble salad - bed of sauteed greens, with beets and turnips over them, and cooked grains of your choice.
