A Recipe for Spring — Bright Beetroot Soup

Marking the start of season with a soup to match the colour of Spring!

Bright Beetroot Soup

A nourishing and gentle meal, this soup is for rejuvenation and renewal. Much like the season itself, it is vibrant and welcomed. Clear blue spring days, colour returning to the branches and new flowers poking through the soil. This soup celebrates the start of the new season and matches the colour of blossom all around.

Ingredients List

4 beetroots

1 x leek, sliced in coins

2 large potatos

1 x carrot

4 x cloves of garlic, halved and quartered

1 tsp coriander seed

1/2 tsp of tumeric

Butter (a healthy dollop!)

A pinch of cayenne pepper


4 cups of water or stock (adjust for desired consistency)

Bright Beetroot Soup


In the pot, set to a low heat, add butter, garlic cloves, coriander seeds, tumeric, a pinch of salt and leeks. When the leeks begin to soften (they should not colour) add the potatoes, carrots and stock or water. If using water add an extra teaspoon of sea salt now. Simmer on high for ten minutes and then add the beets. Continue to simmer until potatoes are cooked.

Take of the heat. With a wizz stick gently blend the soup. It will form a beautiful pink velvety consistency. Taste here! Add salt or pepper to season. Serve with a pinch of cayenne, olive oil and a sprig of thyme and of course a big slice of soughdough and butter!

Serves 4.
