BEETROOT & CARROT SOUP WITH FETA CHEESE
A delicious and vibrant kid-friendly soup made with raw beetroot, carrot and potatoes, garnished with creme fraiche and crumbled feta cheese.
Health wise, this soup makes an excellent meal choice for adults and kids alike. Beetroot is an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C, potassium, magnesium, iron and folic acid. It is also rich in powerful antioxidents and fibre.
I used raw beetroot in this recipe. You could also use the ready-cooked variety, just make sure it hasn’t be preserved in vinegar as this will make the soup taste pretty nasty! If the beetroot is pre-cooked you should also adjust the cooking time.
I found just one bowl of this soup to be really filling and didn’t miss not having bread with it. But you can of course serve it with some nice crusty bread to bulk it out a little.
