Sauteed Fiddleheads and Beets

Paleo Beets and Fiddleheads - www.ThePrimalDesire.com Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best.  Especially when you are hungry, and pressed for time.  I adore fiddleheads, they are in the fern family; little baby ferns.  But they can be expensive and hard to find.  Feel free to substitute another vegetable, or double the beets!
