I’ve struggled for a while to get a beetroot soup that I can cope with. This beetroot and orange soup seems to be my ideal soup for this vegetable.
For me, it needs the addition of the citrus to be palatable. Everyone else is different. I also left out the salt and pepper in my version, but feel free to add it to yours. I had to experiment with beetroot, as the first versions I made came out orange. I suspect it was more to do with the variety of beetroot and where it was grown than anything else.
The kids preferred a little cream mixed into theirs at the serving stage, so it’s all good for turning this into a cream of beetroot soup, quite easily.
