Beetroot Soup

Beetroot-Soup

This Beetroot Soup is the tastiest soup I have ever made. I adored it and had the left overs for lunch for a couple of days. The kids liked it but they think my Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup is better.

I based my recipe off a recipe my husband’s Nana gave to me for Borscht. My recipe has only about half the ingredients of a traditional Borshct.

I used my fab Soup and Co to make this soup, but it could easily be adapted to be made on the stove top and I have included instructions for that at the end as well.

Stock Pot Instructions:
Beetroot Soup

  • If you are using a stock pot, bring ingredients to the boil, then turn down and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Then puree small batches at a time with a stick blender. Doing it this way you can adjust the thickness of the soup by how much of the liquid you add. For a thicker soup you can leave some of the liquid out.
  • Once blended return to the pot and add sour cream. Stir in thoroughly and return to a gentle heat if the soup needs to be hotter to serve.

    Oh I can’t wait to try this recipe! I’m a big fan of beetroot, but I tend to use it mostly in salads with spinach, pinenuts, feta and roasted butternut pumpkin.
