You might expect a red beetroot soup with apples and coconut milk to taste quite unique, and you wouldn’t be wrong. This is an unusual soup which is full of flavour. Give it a try! Many consider red beetroot a superfood – it’s full of fibre, iron and magnesium. Red beetroots get their distinctive colour from a pigment called ‘betanin’, known for its antioxidant qualities.

Instructions

  1. Peel the beetroots and cut them into cubes of about 1.5 cm. Set aside.
  2. Peel the carrot and one apple and cut them into cubes as well. Chop the garlic finely and grate the ginger.
  3. Heat up some olive oil in a pot and fry the carrot together with the ginger and garlic. After five minutes, add the apple cubes and the cumin powder. Fry everything for another two minutes.
  4. In the meantime, make a vegetable stock. Add the beetroot cubes, as well as the fried carrots, ginger and garlic, to the stock and bring everything to the boil.

  6. When all the vegetables are cooked, you can purée the soup with three-quarters of the coconut milk. Let the mixture simmer for a while.
  7. Cut the remaining unpeeled apple into small 0.5cm cubes. Add them to a bowl together with the remaining coconut milk and the chopped parsley.
  8. Serve the soup topped with a spoonful of the coconut-apple-parsley mixture and a lemon wedge. Season with salt and pepper.
