Easy Breezy Carrots Or Beets

By November 17, 2012

Submitted by Teresa G.


Place butter, a tablespoon or two into your instant pot…..melt it somewhat, Peel and cut up your carrots, add a 1/4 tsp baking soda, stir.

Pressure cook for about 4 minutes

You end up with delicious caramelized carrots.

You can prepare beets the same way…..pressure cook them slightly (water in pressure cooker), run under cold water,  the peel then just slides off,   slice them and then proceed as with the carrots.

So nutritious and delicious.

    4 minutes was just too long. Next time, I’ll try just 2, and see if they are cooked enough. These, tonight, were mushy.

    For those of us who are staying away from sugar and ALL fats, can’t we just put the carrots and water in and leave it at that?

    What does it mean to “stir” pressure cook for 4 minutes? Do you mean to just stir in the cooker for 4 minutes?

    I think it’s missing a period after “stir”.

    These look great. But don’t you have to add water to pressure cook in the instant pot?

    These turn out great. I use 1 Tablespoon of butter for 3 cups of baby carrots. I also add a tiny bit of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of honey in the pot for a slightly candied carrot side dish. They are extremely soft with just four minutes and have a brown, carmelized appearance. So quick, too. Thanks.
