Quick-fix Meal: BEETROOT SOUP

Yeah, it may sound incredibly strange, but I am talking about a soup made of beetroots. It’s a double whammy – healthy and yummy.


Beetroot – 2 (medium-sized)
Potato – 1 (similar size)
Salt to taste
Pepper powder – ¼ tsp
Cheese cube – 1 (grated)
Milk – 50 ml (½ a tea cup)
Cream – 1 tsp (optional)


Wash, peel and cut the beetroot and potato into pieces and pressure cook with water and salt for two whistles. Wait for it to cool and run it in the food processor till it makes a smooth paste. Add more water if required to bring it to the consistency of a thick soup. Bring the mixture to a slow boil.

Run the milk, grated cheese, pepper powder and cream in the blender and add to the boiling soup while stirring. Cook for five more minutes before switching off gas.

Serve hot after garnishing with cream or grated cheese along with some garlic toast or bread or bread sticks.
