The Easiest (and Fastest) Way to Cook Beets

These beets are simple and delicious, and a great alternative to making them in the oven. With this method you do not have to wrap in foil, you won't use any oil, and it takes a fraction of the time. 

Did you know? Beets contain a large amount of dietary fiber, making them a gut-healing nutritional powerhouse.

1. Pour 1 cup water into your Instant Pot.

2. Clean and trim* beets and place on metal steaming rack.

3. Cook on high pressure for 18 minutes... done!


If you don't have an instant pot, get one. It's a complete game changer for busy families, or people who have trouble cooking on high pain days. 

 

Tips:

Wash skin and trim greens off (save these for sautéing or adding to soups!).

After cooking, rub the beet skin off with a clean kitchen towel or use the edge of a knife.

Enjoy on a salad, tossed with oil and vinegar for a delicious side dish, or by themselves!
