Take beetroot leaves off beetroot. Discard and wilted or yellow/brown leaves.
Trim off any bad stalks so you end up with it looking like this.
It's up to you how big or fine, I like it this size....
Heat butter in a large frying pan with garlic.
Add beetroot, stalk bits on bottom and leaves on top. Season with salt and pepper.
Add a splash of water.
Cover with a lid, or another frying pan if no lid not big enough! :-)
After a few minutes beetroot should be tender and cooked, if not stir and replace lid for another couple minutes, repeat until ready!
Serve! I love this with roast chicken! But will go with lots of dishes, think of it like spinach!
