This is a great recipe for using up your wayward winter greens like the tops of beets. Slideshow: Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large saucepan, cover the wild rice with the water, add 1 teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over moderately low heat until the rice is tender but still chewy, about 1 hour. Drain the rice well.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet. Cook the garlic over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add the greens and cook, tossing occasionally, until wilted, about 4 minutes. Add the balsamic, red pepper and season with salt. Cook one minute more, until the vinegar has reduced, and remove to a mixing bowl.

Step 3    

Toss the wild rice with the wilted greens and serve warm.
