- 1 fresh medium beet
Wash and then peel the beet.
Cut off the tops and then cut the beets into small chunks.
Place chunks into a steamer pan with just enough water visible through the steamer basket. You can even pressure cook them till 2-3 whistles.
Steam until tender.

Place into a blender or a food processor and begin pureeing.
Add water as necessary to achieve a smooth, thin consistency.
