Got some beetroot and apples from the garden looking for a delicious recipe?
With huge thanks to our very good friend and master gardener Bill Tait, here’s a fabulous recipe for a hearty soup. Laura confirms it’s totally delicious!
One large onion – chopped
Two or three potatoes – chopped
Two large cooking apples – cored, chopped but not peeled
Two or three large carrots – chopped
Two medium beetroots – chopped
Two chicken/vegetable stock cubes
Briefly, fry the chopped onion in butter. Add the potatoes, beetroot, cooking apples and carrots, together with the stock cubes and a sprinkle of salt and enough water to make up a good pan full. Bring to the boil and simmer until the vegetables are soft. Liquidise and serve with some cream or yoghurt.
