This recipe will teach you how to cook delicious Whole30 and paleo beets in the Instant Pot.
Cut the beet top and root end off. Place the root end on a cutting board and using a sharp knife, cut downward to remove the skin. Save the greens for a salad, sous vide egg bites or a quiche.
Put a trivet/steamer basket in your Instant Pot and add 1.5 cups of water. Place the beets on top of the trivet.
Secure your lid. Set the vent to "sealing", then Manual>High Pressure>13 minutes.
When the cook time is up, use a dish rag to carefully flip the vent to "venting". Remove beets from the Instant Pot and allow to cool. Slice and enjoy!
Follow the first step above. To make the beets cook more quickly, chop into bite-sized pieces.
Place a steamer basket in a pot and add enough water to cover the bottom. Place a lid on and steam for 30-50 minutes or until the beet is easily pierced with a knife.
You can stack a few layers of beets in the Instant Pot if you want to cook a bunch at once. Add 2 minutes of cooking time if you're cooking more than two pounds.
Store beets in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week.
