Beetroot and garlic soup

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I bought a food processor in an attempt to add more veggies in my diet, especially raw ones and so far I’m doing great. One of the things I’m doing often these days is soups, most of them are ready in minutes. I add some veggies that I’m not very found of, like the carrot. The carrot and other similar veggies give a mild taste and they are easily overpowered by the others.

This is the first beetroot soup I’ve made and it turned out beautifully. It was ready in 5 minutes and it was delicious.

Ingredients for 4 servings:
– 1 pack of cooked beetroot, 350g
– 2 cloves of garlic
– 1 carrot
– sea salt
– olive oil and sunflower seeds to serve

02 Beetroot and garlic soup
Put the beetroot with the carrot in the blender and the salt. If your blender is less powerful, crush the garlic before adding it to the veggies. Add some boiling water.

I prefer to add boiling water as I find the soup will boil more easily after is blended.

Put it on the hob at medium heat. Add more boiling water and stir it. In a couple of minutes the soup will boil and is ready to serve.

The carrot is slightly raw, but this is the way I prefer it. As it is blended it will not make any difference to the taste.
