Notes

One cup of beet greens has 4 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein, plus ample vitamins A and K, and minerals like phosphorous and since. They can be juiced just like regular greens too, so throw them in (remove stems first) if you want a protein and vitamin boost. While beet greens do have a strong flavor, it's not any more powerful than, say, kale. In this recipe, that flavor gets mellowed out by creamy avocado, bulgur and tahini.
