  • 3 Beet or Beetroot equal-sized
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil extra virgin
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • Trim the beet leaves leaving the root. Rinse the beets under water to remove any dirt.
  • Place the beets in your silicone steamer basket
  • Add a cup of water to the instant pot and place the basket in it. Close the lid and turn the valve to sealing position.
  • For small to medium sized beets, cook on MANUAL or pressure cook mode at high pressure for 15 minutes. For all large beets, cook for 20 minutes.
  • When pressure cooking is done, allow natural release for 10 minutes, then quick release the pressure.
  • Open the lid and check that the beets are tender all the way through by inserting a knife through one of them. If the beets are not tender, let them pressure cook for few more minutes.
  • Carefully remove the steamer basket and transfer the beets to a plate and let them cool for few minutes.
  • Peel the skin and slice the beets as you prefer. Enjoy! 🙂
