Got beetroot growing in the garden? Great Beetroot Soup Recipe

If you have beetroot growing in your garden this is great money saving recipe – Try my beetroot leaf soup. I sadly don’t so I bought raw beetroots at the market this weekend (I love grated beetroot and carrot in salads).

They came complete with long stalks and leaves.

I was about to cut off the stalks and leaves when it occurred to me that they might be edible. I googled ‘beetroot leaves recipe’ and loads of ideas came up including salads and soups.

In the end, I made a soup, made up from ideas I picked up in the recipes.

It’s really nice and I’m taking some into the office tomorrow for my lunch. Yum!

Beetroot leaves soup

  • beetroot leaves soupA bunch of stalks and leaves, washed and chopped (I bought 5 beetroots so it was about a handful of leaves and stalks)
  • Half an onion, chopped
  • 2 large celery stalks, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 soup stock cube (veg or chicken)
  • Salt and pepper etc

  4. Melt the soup stock in a pint of boiling water and add to the mixture.
  5. Boil for a few minutes then leave to stand for a bit.
  6. Blend the mixture

  1. Great idea. I have actually seen a tv chef (name escapes me but I think he’s called Phil)makinga dish including beetroot leaves and I’ve added just a handful to some dishes because of that. Great money saving idea, once again.
