Beet Soup For Detoxing

Beet Soup For Detoxing

This beet soup, made from a fresh beet, only takes 15 minutes from start to finish. Try it with a more exotic taste by seasoning it with cumin powder.

Ingredients: 2 bowls

Olive oil
1 tablespoon
Ginger (finley minced)
10 g
Onion (or shallots) (finely minced)
1/2 (or 1)
1 stalk
Apple (optional)
Vegetable bouillon granules
400 ml
Salt and pepper (to taste)
as needed
Orange juice (if adding the apple)
Soy milk (if not adding the apple)
100 ml
Sour cream (optional)
1 teaspoon
Cumin powder (optional)
to taste


1. Sauté the shallots and ginger in vegetable oil. Finely chop the celery, apple, and beet root, add it to the pot and continue to sauté. Add the bouillon and boil over medium heat for about 15 minutes.
2. If desired, pureé the ingredients, and season with salt and pepper to taste. If adding the apple, add orange juice, then serve.
3. If not adding the apple, add soy milk, bring to a boil, and immediately serve. The feature photo shows how it looks made with soy milk and cumin, with a dollop of sour cream.
4. If using raw beetroot, cook it for about 10 minutes in a pressure cooker after the pressure rises. If cooking in a pot or in a 200℃ oven, allow about 20 minutes. Test for tenderness with a skewer.

Story Behind this Recipe

Since I had 1/2 a beetroot leftover from making a salad, I made this with soy milk.
