This beetroot soup has more health benefits then you might realise. Beetroots are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium and manganese. They’re great for the liver, as they stimulate the liver’s detoxifying processes. The pigment in beetroot is a powerful anti-cancer fighting agent. That, paired with the high fiber content, helps protect against colon cancer.

Beetroots have a gorgeous colour, and quite a strong earthy flavour. Adding ginger and coconut milk softens the earthy flavour and gives this soup a subtle sweetness. This Beetroot soup is the perfect, easy recipe to try this Winter season!
