Originating in Russia, this soup is made from beetroot. We’ve added a few more winter vegetables for extra taste and dark rye so you can enjoy every last mouthful!

Ingredients

Olive oil

1 tbs

Red onion

1 medium, chopped

Leek(s)

1 whole, thinly sliced

Carrot(s)

1 medium, chopped

Beetroot

500 g, peeled

Vegetable stock

3 cup(s), (750ml)

Extra light sour cream

cup(s), (80g)

Ground nutmeg

¼ tsp

Fresh dill

1 tbs, chopped

Dark rye bread

4 slice(s), (4x40g), toasted

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, leek and carrot and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened.
  2. Add beetroot and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes or until beetroot is tender. Set aside to cool slightly. Using a food processor or stick blender, process soup until smooth. Top with sour cream and sprinkle with nutmeg and dill. Serve with bread.

Notes

Suitable to freeze (without sour cream and dill) for up to 3 months.
