Beetroot & sweet potato soup

For a bright, pink, fun soup there are not many to beat this! Beetroots are great sources of fibre and beta carotene, and are traditionally thought to be beneficial for the liver. 

Cooking the beetroot and other vegetables not only brings out the wonderful flavours, but it also helps to reduce the risk of food poisoning if your immune system is challenged. 

  • Prep time:
    about 20 minutes
  • Cooking time:
    about 40 minutes
  • Serves:
    4

Method

  1. Splash a little of each oil in a medium-sized pan and heat. 
  2. Add the onion, carrot, garlic and celery and fry gently. 
  3. After 5 minutes or so, when they are soft, add the beetroots, sweet potatoes and vegetable stock. 
  4. Simmer for 30 minutes.
  5. When all the veg are very soft, remove the pan from the heat and leave the soup to cool for 10 minutes. 
  6. Then, using a blender/processor or stick blender, blitz until creamy and smooth.

Serve with bread and ground seed butter.
