Beetroot soup is a fabulous colour as well as being nutritious and delicious.  Blend everything together before serving if you prefer smooth soup.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 1 large beetroot
  • 1 large potato
  • 50g dairy-free butter, we use Pure Sunflower
  • 1 tbsp plain flour, gluten-free if you prefer
  • 1-litre beef or chicken stock, hot
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • Dairy-free crème fraiche (optional)

Method

1. Peel and finely dice (about 2cm) the onion, beetroot and potato.

2. Melt the dairy-free butter and add the onion.

3. Sweat gently for a few minutes.

4. Add the potato and beetroot and stir well to combine.

5.  After two or three minutes, stir in the flour, and again, stir well to combine and cook the flour.  Add the heated stock and tomato paste.  Simmer gently until the vegetables are tender, about 45 minutes.

6. Season to taste.

7. Serve with a swirl of dairy-free crème fraiche, if using.

  • Sesame free hummus

    It’s easy to leave sesame (in the form of tahini) out of hummus and still have a really delicious, easy dip. This is one of our favourites!

  • Baked jacket potatoes

    Not so much of a recipe as a reminder not to forget about the humble British spud when you are planning what to feed your family. Potatoes are so versatile, packed with vitamin C and fibre and relatively inexpensive. They’re a great alternative to gluten-free pasta and rice.

  • Apples and raisins baked in apple juice

    Nick, Jen’s husband, does not have good memories of “baked apples” from his childhood but he’s happy that this recipe is a regular in their house.

  • Rice Pudding

    Find comfort in a bowl with this old-fashioned pudding, especially when it is cold outside. You do need to use short-grain rice and take it out of the oven before all the milk has absorbed, so that it is still creamy.

  • Mince Pies

    Mince pies are Jen’s FAVOURITE Christmas food! This is her quick hack if you don’t have the ingredients (or time!) to make your own from scratch – just use shop-bought pastry and a jar of mincemeat.

  • Non-cheese straws

    These non-cheese straws make a very quick snack that adults and children enjoy and are special enough for a party.
