Beetroot. One of those vegetables that is often passed up in the shops or just turned into a pickle. Instead, why not make it into this delicious yet fresh warming soup, perfect comfort food.
I was doing my shopping recently and noticed that 500g bags of cooked beetroot were really cheap so I picked up a couple of bags (I love beetroot as do my family). I first made this soup as a way to use up surplus beetroot that were in my vegetable box. The thai spices work really well, they are fresh and in no way mask the lovely earthy flavour of the beetroot. I love making this soup with a real kick of chilli, but my kids wouldn’t then eat it, so adapt the chilli heat as you see fit.
