Warming winter spices, vibrant pink beetroot, nourishing sweet potato, creamy horseradish yoghurt. This is a gorgeous soup that’s very simple to make. It freezes well, so you can make a big batch and enjoy through the winter months.
Beetroot has a low GL (specially when raw), so it helps keep blood sugar stable. It contains soluble fibre which helps keep blood cholesterol level healthy, as well as potassium and manganese. The leafy parts of the plant are an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, iron, folate, beta-carotene and vitamin C.
The red pigment in beetroot is believed to contain certain anti-cancer agents, which is why it has been used in the alternative treatment of cancer for many years. It is used in traditional medicine to strengthen the blood.
