Sweet and spicy beetroot soup

Sweet and spicy beetroot soup

Posted 2017-06-16 by Maryanafollow
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.


Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 45-50 minutes
Serves: 3-4

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
3 medium beetroots, peeled and chopped
3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
1 litre vegetable stock
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon orange zest
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Chopped green onions, to garnish

Method:
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan, and then add the onion. Cook the onion gently for about 5 minutes until it softens, stirring occasionally.



  • Add the ginger to the onion and cook the onion-ginger mixture for about 1 minute.



  • Add the beetroot, carrots, stock, bay leaves, orange zest, black pepper and salt to the saucepan.



  • 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.
  • Carefully remove the bay leaves from the saucepan. Using an immersion blender or a food processor, puree the soup until about half of the soup is smooth.



  • Before serving, reheat the soup and garnish it with the green onions.
