Nothing this colour could be edible …. but it is!
- 1lb/450g raw beetroot
- 1 onion
- 1 carrot
- 1 small potato
- 1½ pints water (or vegetable/chicken stock)
- salt and pepper
- Yoghurt to garnish
- Peel and finely chop or grate the vegetables, and sauté in some butter or oil for about 5 minutes – until they are softening. Add the water or stock, and season. Bring to the boil, then allow to simmer until the vegetables are very soft – 40 minutes to 1 hour.
- Remove from the heat, and allow to cool. Liquidise, or blitz in the food processor, until very smooth. Reheat gently.
- Serve in bowls with a dramatic swirl of yoghurt.
