Beetroot and Coconut Soup

After the festive excess we asked the Bearwood Pantry team (and makers of Birmingham SOUP soups) to give us a tasty, wholesome, healthy recipe to kickstart your 2016!

500g roasted beetroot and then chopped
2 onions chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic sliced
thumb sized piece of ginger
lemongrass, Kaffir leaves (didn’t have either of these so used some chopped preserve lemon)
teaspoon of cumin, chilli (fresh, dried, powdered)
Stock – enough to cover probably about a pint (depends how thick you want your soup)
Coconut (milk, dessicated) either will work. Add just under a tin.

Gently saute onion till soft and transparent for 10 mins, add garlic and spices and gently fry for further 5 mins, add beetroot and stock, simmer for 20 mins, add coconut milk and then simmer for further 10-20 mins. Blend and eat with some toasted sourdough bread.

Thank you for your continued support. Help spread the word and let’s make positive change and great projects happen in our city!
