Reader recipe: Pressure cooker beetroot
Beetroot can take an hour or more to cook and it can be messy, Anne White says, but her recipe makes it easy.
- Trim leaves from beetroot (careful not to cut into beet). Rinse to remove any dirt. Season with salt and pepper.
- Place on a rack in the pressure cooker, add water and cook for 25 minutes on high.
- Release pressure either naturally or by release valve. Remove from cooker, cool a few minutes then carefully (because they will be hot) rub off skins and remove the root.
- Serve as you wish, sliced/quartered etc, as a side dish, in a salad etc. A good topping is crumbled blue cheese.
