"Instant" Beets

Beets are popping up all over the place these days. They're starring in salads, sides, soups, and smoothies. The Instant Pot makes it easier than ever to cook these gems for your favorite recipe. Here's how I do it...

Ingredients for "Instant" Beets:

a bunch of medium - sized beets, greens cut off and beets scrubbed

1 1/4 cups water

Instant Pot

I have a 6 cup Instant Pot Ultra and love it. Click Here for more information on my Instant Pot.

This is also another recipe that I use food prep gloves. Working with fresh red beets is a tricky business. Wearing the gloves keep my hands clean and prevent staining them red. Click HERE to learn more about the gloves.

Time-Saving Tip: You can trim and clean the beets in advance of cooking them. Cooked beets will keep for days in the refrigerator.

Let's see what we need.

Let's cook the beets.

Pour water into the pot. Add the cleaned beets. They should be placed on a trivet or a rack. Set the pressure cooker for 10 minutes on High. Once done cooking do a quick release. When the beets are cool enough to handle, peel off the skin.

They're ready! The beets are perfectly cooked. They are ready to eat as is or in your favorite recipe.

You're so welcome! I was also cooking my beets in the oven and decided to put my Instant Pot to work. I'm so glad I did. Enjoy!

This is so helpful. I cooked beets in my oven for nearly an hour last week and will do this going forward, thank you!
