   Ingredients needed

   Beetroot - 2 medium size
   Potato - 1 medium size
   Onion - 1 finely chopped
   Garlic -2 cloves finely chopped
   Oil or butter -1 tsp
   Salt to taste
   Pepper Powder to taste

   For garnishing

   Fresh cream - 1 tbsp (optional)
   Basil or mint leaves - 2-3


Preparation 

Wash, peel and chop potato and beetroots.

Cook beetroots and potatoes in a pan with just enough water until soft or you can pressure cook beetroots and potatoes together for 3 whistles. Leave it to cool. If there is excess water, you can strain and use that water for preparing the soup.

Method 

Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onions, garlic and saute until onions turn transparent.

Now grind the onions and garlic along with cooked beetroot and potato to a smooth paste. Strain using a soup strainer.

Heat 1 1/2 cups of water or vegetable stock and add the puree. Mix well and bring it to boil.

Add salt and pepper powder to taste.

Garnish with cream, mint leaves and serve hot.

Note - If you want a low calorie soup, you can skip adding cream.

  8. Hi i made the soup. It was very dense for my liking so I used it as a concentrate, jarred it and put it in the fridge. Then would ladel 1:3 soup:water proportion and just bring the mixture to boil. It comes out super quick and delicious. It has become a staple in my house as a meal or as a snack. Loved it!!
    Thanks
