Beautiful Soup

In my veg box this week was double quantities of beetroot. It's in season. So I made a batch of my beloved beetroot soup.

I scrubbed the beetroot and cooked it first. Then the skins slides off easily.

I diced the beetroot and added it and potatoes to a softened onion in the pan.

And then poured in two pints of stock, and simmered it for about 45 minutes. The soup needs to be whizzed in a blender. The soup is such a beautiful colour. Almost it's too pretty to eat. But not quite!

I froze quite a lot for future soup eating at cooler times of the year
