All this canning, jarring and freezing has filled up all my pantry space, but also my freezer. Trying to make some room I pulled out some beet greens I had frozen last winter. Combined with some creamy white beans, I also added a late summer splash with garden-fresh tomatoes and thyme. Red pepper flakes add some spice, if you like.
