Hi everyone, I tried this recently and it turned out really well. And mind you, am not a great fan of beetroort at all. An interesting way to consume beetroot and yes, healthy too.
It is a Russian soup made of beetroot. One can serve it clear or thick.
Take a large bowl and saute onions (1 large), 1 carrot, cut into pieces, 250 gms raw betroot, sliced, fennel and celery(1 stick, roughly chopped) and one bay leaf. Cover for a while. let it cook on slow fire. Then add vegetable or chicken stock and stir. Remove from fire and take out the bay leaf. Cool it. Liquidise the rest of the mixture. Add lemon juice, salt, pepper. Garnish with a dollop of yoghurt or sour cream. Seve hot.
