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


  1. Just sweat the celery, onion and garlic in a pan with a little olive oil.
  2. When they’re soft add in the chopped beetroot stalks and leaves and continue to cook them all until they’re all soft.
  3. Add in some pepper and salt.
  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

Serving: heat to serve – good with crusty bread, cheese, cold meats and so on. Go on, enjoy!

Beetroot leaves have a similar taste to spinach and can be used in a variety of dishes. Why not give it a try.

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.
