This soup has a wonderful balance of flavours with the most important element being a beautiful home-made chicken stock. It is such a delightful colour and looks so much like tomato soup but has a very distinctive flavour of beetroot with a lovely sweetness.
Check the recipe-main meals section of the website for the chicken stock recipe.
Prepare the vegetables by washing, peeling and chopping.
Add the stock and put the lid on and let simmer for about 60 minutes.
This is a very thick and filling soup. It has the most delicious sweet flavour and the colour is enticing. The main tips for this soup are to brown the vegetables before you put the stock in, use a very good quality home-made stock and use fresh vegetables.
