Meatless Monday: Rich Beetroot Soup

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

I love the colours in these pictures – they’re so beautiful!
It really wasn’t on purpose, but the leaves are actually matching the colour of the soup.
Everything in these pictures is so autumnal – the soup, the leaves and the amazing colours.

Now, let’s focus on the soup though. It’s thick, rich and creamy beetroot soup with lots of other vegetables in it.
It is not only good for you but it is quite tasty with some feta cheese crumbled on top.
What else is inside – potatoes, shallots, garlic, celery, carrots and of course beets.
Especially good on cold autumn/winter day!

Here’s what you need.
