Beetroot and Carrot Soup


Super-healthy vegetables bathe in a bowl of creamy beetroot soup in this easy winter warmer.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 bunch beetroot (4 beetroot)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium brown onion, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, peeled, chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, sliced
  • 500g desiree potatoes, peeled, chopped
  • 1 bouquet garni (dried herbs)
  • 4 cups chicken stock (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • chopped fresh chives, to serve

Method

1. Trim beetroot stems and leaves. Wearing gloves, peel and chop beetroot. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot and celery. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Add beetroot, potatoes, bouquet garni, stock and 1 cup cold water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, partially covered, for 1 hour or until beetroot is tender. Cool slightly. Remove and discard bouquet garni.

2. Process soup, in batches, until smooth. Return soup to pan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes or until heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle soup into bowls. Top with sour cream. Sprinkle with chives. Serve.

Notes: For a vegetarian soup, use vegetable stock instead of chicken
