Here is a healthy, quick and easy recipe for Beetroot Soup from the Morganics Seasonal Recipe Collection.
Autumn Beetroot Soup
- 4 extra large beetroots
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 150 g raw cashews (preferably organic)
- 3/4 bunch fresh dill
- 1 L vegetable stock (preferably organic and/or homemade)
- 200 mL coconut milk
- 2 tbs natural Greek yoghurt (and 1 tbs extra per person for garnish)
- 1 tbs chopped chives
- Preheat oven to 200°C.
- Wash beetroot and leave skins on. Peel garlic. Season beetroot and garlic with sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste.
- Place beetroot and garlic in baking tray for about 45 minutes or until a skewer can easily be inserted into the flesh.
- When beetroot and garlic are cool enough to touch, peel and roughly chop.
- Put roasted, chopped beetroot and garlic in a blender and blend with all other ingredients (except coconut milk) until smooth. Transfer to saucepan and heat soup through.
- Add coconut milk and stir gently until all soup is heated.
- When soup is ready, ladle into individual soup bowls and garnish with 1/2 tbs of yoghurt and a sprinkle of chives for each person.
