A mix of steamed and pan seared cauliflower with steamed beets served with salad greens and a vinaigrette of your choice.
In the inner steel pot of the instant pot, put in one cup of water
Put half of the cauliflower florets in a steaming basket and put the basket into the instant pot
Keep the steam release handle on 'venting' and use the steaming function for 2 minutes
Remove the cauliflower from the instant pot and keep aside .
Put the beets in the water leftover from steaming the cauliflower
Put the instant pot on manual pressure for 6 minutes, close the steam release handle
Allow the pressure to release naturally when the instant pot finishes cooking
Meanwhile, heat a sauté pan and add oil
Add in the remaining cauliflower florets and cook until tender and seared
Remove from heat and keep aside
Peel the beets and cut into desired shapes - circles/ stars ( with a small cookie cutter)
Arrange the beets, cauliflower and frisee on a serving platter. Serve with the dressing on the side
Combine the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and Dijon mustard in a small jar with a
tight-fitting lid. Shake them until the salt and mustard are fully dissolved.
Add the olive oil and shake the jar again, this time until the mixture is fully blended.
I used the Frisee lettuce for the salad as the peppery flavor nicely balanced out the sweetness of beets.
