Deliciously Purple Beetroot Soup


Today I thought I would share with you this quick and easy recipe- the awful weather recently has meant that I've not been able to get out and take outfit pictures. Yesterday when it was blowing a gale I decided to make some soup. I've tried this recipe before and found it unbelievably quick and easy. You should defiantly give it a go.

You will need:
500g cooked beetroot (not pickled)
3 small potatoes
1 red onion
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic (crushed)
500ml beef (or any type you want)
2 bay leaves

Firstly peel potatoes and cut them into quarters. Peel and chop the onion- this doesn't have to be done too well because it will be blended. Soften the onion in the oil for 5 minutes, then add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Add the potatoes and stock. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked. Put the beetroot in a blender until smooth. Once the potatoes are cooked add the soup to the blender.

Blend until smooth and return to the pot. I then added two bay leaves and left it to cook until needed or put it in the freezer. Add more stock if you want a thinner soup. Ladle into bowls and that's you done. Doesn't the colour just look delicious?

I hope you've been enjoying these posts because they haven't been receiving as much feedback. I sometimes would prefer my blog to be mostly outfit posts but this is hard with my current lifestyle. Please let me know below what you would like to see more/less of.

  1. I'm not quite sure I would fall in love with beetroot soup, but the end result does look very pretty. :)
