Beetroot soup [Some veggies deserve a 2nd chance!]

IMG_7631

I know, most of you probably aren’t too fond of beetroot. It’s a tricky vegetable that possibly spoilt some of your childhood memories. But honestly, everybody deserves a second chance, right? And that’s exactly what I did and I ended up with a colourful, fresh and super tasty soup. The combination of beetroot, potatoes and buttermilk will make your taste buds happy and scare every bit of winter blues or springtime lethargy far, far away. I promise!

Beetroot soup:

makes 3-4 servings

  • 1 onion
  • 400g beetroot (I used precooked, but fresh ones will work as well)
  • 150g potatoes
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 250ml buttermilk
  • salt and pepper

Dice onion, peel potatoes [and beetroot if you use fresh ones] and cut vegetables in medium sized pieces. Put the vegetables and oil in a medium pot and braise it lightly for about 3 minutes. Add 750ml water and let it simmer for 20 minutes.

Blend soup to taste, add 200ml buttermilk and mix thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper.

Before serving: Use a little milk frother to foam the remaining buttermilk and top the hot soup with it.
