Roasted Baby Beets with Figs, Goat Cheese & Sweet Potato Greens
Sweet potato greens are a delicacy, culled from the plants as the sweet potatoes are growing. They have a firm texture that turns velvety when cooked, and the flavor is both floral and minerally. They can also be eaten raw in a salad, just as one would enjoy raw kale. In this main dish salad, they are contrasted with sweet beets and figs, with a tangy touch of lemon and goat cheese.
