What a week!! Filled with lots of unexpected twists and turns, exciting work stuff and finally getting ready to move to our new home next month :) So since there's a bunch of things going on, I don't have much time to whip up something in the kitchen, but what I do have is a beautiful beetroot soup recipe for you.. It was featured in last month's BBC Good Food ME.. Simple, original and delicious!

Easy. Prep & Cook Time: ~ 30 minutes
Serves 2
  • 2 beetroots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 350ml of chicken stock
  • 100ml cooking crème
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • Salt and cracked pepper to taste

Heat a little olive oil in a saucepan and sauté the shallots until they are soft and translucent. Add the beetroot and cook for a few minutes, then add the hot stock, salt and pepper and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.

Once the beetroot is tender, use a hand blender and puree the soup. Add the cream, season once more to taste, and let it cook for another 5 minutes.  Serve the soup in bowls and add a little swirl of crème at the end. Enjoy!
