It’s winter! Well actually it’s the 1st of December as I’m typing this. And all of a sudden the weather has also turned a little chillier hasn’t it? This always makes me feel pretty good. Well winter is supposed to be cold isn’t it? Teen temperatures at the end of November are not too great for my climate anxiety.
Cold weather means making and having ALL the soups! I absolutely love soups in winter with a chunk of bread or toast (a totally must-do requirement!). I could honestly have a lovely soup every day (a different one each day of course!).
Now this might sound odd at the first read when you read the title. But if you like beetroot, this particular soup is most definitely for you. And if also you like spicy winter warmers, definitely try this. It is so very refreshing and still warming – a truly energising soup. You will just feel bursting with life after eating this – please trust me! It’s an interestingly beautiful combination of beetroot, carrots, orange and ginger. It’s just wonderful!
And the best part of it is, this vegan beetroot soup with orange and ginger is super easy to make. Throw all the ingredients into the pan, cook and blend. Voila. Add a dollop of creme fraiche or sour cream (or vegan version of these) if you wish. Enjoy!
