Beetroot soup. Yummy and healthy. No cornflour or bread or any flour added. Used 1 cucumber to get a creamy thick texture.
If you are on strict dieting omit the butter and enjoy hot or cold.
This post is going to be a part of #foodiemonday #bloghop theme is soup.
I choose beetroot. It is low in fat. Full of vitamins and minerals and packed with powerful antioxidants.
Beetroot – 2 grated
Carrot- 1 grated
Tomato – 2 diced
Cucumber – 1 grated
Grated ginger – 1/2 teaspoon ( I forgot to add)
Coriander leaves – handful chopped
Onions – 2 diced
Garlic – 2-3 cloves chopped
Salt to taste
Black paper powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Vegetable oil or butter – 1 tablespoon ( I used 1/2 oil 1/2 butter)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Heat oil or butter in a pan. Add the garlic. Fry till light brown then add the onion and grated ginger.
Fry for 1-2 minutes more. Now add all the vegetables and salt. Saute for some time. Add 2 cup water. Let it boil.
Cover and cook on simmer for 10 minutes.
Stir well and cook uncovered on full flame for 5-6 minutes. Switch off the flame and let it cool.

I like my soup thick. Filling and yummy. Boil the soup again. And its ready.
Garnish with coriander leaves. Add a spoon full of butter and serve hot. Or keep in the refrigerator and serve chilled as a cold soup.
