For the beets, you could prepare them in one of three ways:
- In a pressure cooker (this would be the quickest way to cook them, taking approx. 15-mins or less).
If you don’t have a pressure cooker yet, I highly recommend investing in one. This is one of my favourite kitchen tools and gets used in many recipes, daily.
- Steamed (you don’t need any fancy tools, I just use a metal strainer and a saucepan)
- Roasted (this would offer a nice, roasted flavour). Put in the oven at 400° F for 30-40 mins.
- And a bonus (which I haven’t tried) could be to BBQ/grill the beets. Please let me know if you try this last method in the comments below 🙂
For the chickpeas, you can use canned or dry.
If you’re cooking them yourself, I suggest putting the dry beans in your pressure cooker and using another cooking method for the beets. This will save you time.
For the roasted garlic.
Cut the top off the head of garlic, and drizzle olive oil onto the freshly cut bits. Put back the piece you just cut off, and wrap the whole thing in tin foil. Put in the oven at 400° F for 30-40 mins.
