Beetroot Soup

Updated: Apr 16, 2021


How beautiful does this look?! Excited to share with you that it also tastes amazing and.... yes it’s really great for your health and wellbeing to eat beetroot.

💥Rich in nitrates beetroot can help to reduce risk of heart disease: dietary nitrates convert to nitric oxide, a molecule that helps dilate blood vessels and lower blood pressure.⠀

💥Nitrates help improve use of oxygen and reduce time to exhaustion when exercising, which is why lots of athletes drink beetroot juice!⠀

💥Beetroot is also a rich source of glutamine and fibre, both essential for digestive health⠀

Some easy ways to eat include beetroot into your diet:⠀

👉Chop into cubes, roast in extra virgin olive oil, and add to salads⠀

👉Grate fresh and add to a coleslaw (see winter salad on previous post)⠀

👉Pickled, eaten with mackerel or hummus for lunch⠀

👉Juice with ginger and pomegranate ⠀

👉or perfect winter soup.... Made with onion, red pepper, thyme, horseradish, the stems of chard, sweet potato and beetroot. Cooked with a stock and blended. Sprinkled with toasted hazelnuts and some orange zest.⠀

In fact eating PURPLE FOOD is vital for optimal health (see previous post for details). So keep them in mind when you are food shopping, and make a conscious effort to include some purple foods in your diet regularly.⠀
