Steamed Beets

Steamed Beets

Most of you remember my posts about my produce box I receive from my local farmer, and how much I love this weekly surprise.

Well last week my box had an abundance of heirloom beets in different shades of purple, red and orange, and I couldn’t wait to eat them…so I prepared them in the fastest way possible. I steamed them in my rice cooker in 15 minutes flat and enjoyed an amazing flavor explosion along with tons of health benefits as well.

Ingredients
5-6 raw beets of your choice, washed and quartered.
olive oil
salt and pepper

Directions
Add 2 cups of water to the inner pot of your Rice Cooker. Put the beets in the Steam Tray and place inside the rice cooker. Set on Steam for 15 minutes. After the time has elapsed, test for doneness, they should be a little resistant when pierced with a knife.

Remove from steamer and let cool so you can touch them and rub off the skin with a paper towel.

Drizzle with olive oil , salt and pepper.

You can also add goat cheese for extra flavor.
