Wednesday night I made beetroot soup.
When I was out in the garden I saw that the mice had been at my beetroot again (see this post from a previous year) So I decided to pull up what was still edible and make a soup for tea.
A simple soup consisting of about 6 beetroots, a couple of carrots, a red onion, loads of garlic, some stock and a cooking apple.
The onion and garlic were sweated first to soften, then the other veg were added for a bit, the stock cube and water was poured on after about 15 minutes. I left this to simmer, prepared some dough to prove for rolls and went to bath the kids (the dough was mixed in the bread maker earlier though!)!
I left it to simmer for an hour then blended it with a stick blender.
I served it with rolls on the side and some crumbled feta in the soup.
Now to take care of those mice in the garden, I have a cunning plan....
