Kitchen Tips: How to Cook Beetroot


  • Baking dish or saucepan
  • Board knife
  • Skewer
  • Gloves


  • Beetroots


    1. Trim the stems, leaving 2-3cm. Wash the beetroot gently and lightly rub the skin to remove any loose skin.
    2. To boil, put beetroots in a saucepan, add water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer for 20 to 30mins.
    3. To bake, place the beetroots in a baking dish. Bake in an oven for 2 to 3 hours at 150C.
    4. Test to see that the beetroots are cooked by piercing with a skewer. Once cooked and cooled enough to handle, peel off the skins.
    5. TIP: Beetroots stain your hands, so wear rubber gloves to avoid this.
