This is simple vegetarian soup to warm up a cold day. The beets give it a beautiful rich colour and combine with carrots for a sweet taste; the ginger adds a nice touch of spice. Serve it with whole-grain toast or crackers.

Bring the final mixture to the boil and then cover the saucepan. Simmer the soup over a low heat for 30 minutes or until all the vegetables are soft.
