Beetroot soup

07 Oct 2020, Posted by Angela in FYS Recipes

Beetroot is in season in autumn and this is a wonderful hearty soup to make. Beetroot is a great source of fibre, folate, vitamin C, potassium, manganese, plus it is high in nitrates which helps it to improve blood flow (athletes often use beet juice as a performance enhancer). The lentils ensure it has some protein (often missing in vegetable-based soups).
