Hearty Beetroot Soup

"I sneezed on the beet and the beet got sicka..." - Beyoncé 🥣

I'm not going to lie; the first time I heard of beetroot soup, I was a bit scared, actually, I was horrified. I told myself, "This cannot be good.. AT ALL!!" This is me being honest and transparent with you guys: I'm not the biggest veggie fan in terms of taste. Nevertheless, they have the most beautiful natural colours, they're so bright, so vibrant; when they say you can eat the rainbow through fruits and veggies, they aren't pulling our legs.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin mineral oil

  • ½ yellow onion, chopped

  • 2 tbsp grated ginger

  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 3 beets, peeled and chopped

  • 1 potato, chopped

  • ½ cup plain yogurt

  • Fresh thyme leaves for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat.

  2. Cook the onions, ginger, garlic and a pinch of salt for about 4 - 5 minutes, until soft.

  3. Add beets, potatoes and 4 cups of water. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.

  4. Cook and cover the vegetables for about 25 - 30 minutes until tender. A knife should be able to pass through the veggies easily.

  5. Let cool slightly and transfer to blender. Blend until smooth adding ¼ cup water until desired consistency.

  6. Top with your favourite crunchies (seeds), freshly ground black pepper and plain yoghuty

Enjoy and stay safe x


To all things tasty,
