Fruits and Veggies Monday - Beet Soup Recipe

in fruitsandveggiesmonday •  14 days ago 

This week’s post is inspired by @plantstoplanks, thank you for giving me the idea! 🥰

The contest and challenge #fruitsandveggiesmonday by @lenasveganliving is a wonderful opportunity to share vegan recipes, I am so happy that I came across this tag. I really want to eliminate unhealthy food from my diet and this helps a lot. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

So... last week I shared a Russian potato and beets salad and the lovely @plantstoplanks made a sweet comment saying that she just had beet soup. Well... I had leftover boiled beets so... here it goes... I made soup. Delicious!

Here are the few ingredients. Beets, onion, garlic, ginger, coconut milk, olive oil, limes, cilantro.

As you can see, my beets soup has a Caribbean flavor. From Russian to Caribbean... beets are very versatile. Beets are largely consumed in the Caribbean islands because there are a lot of vegetarian and vegan people. Rastafarians for example are vegans, they eat ITAL food. I dont’t know why it is called Ital, probably short term from ‘vital’... we cut the words so much in the islands, it is so funny, I love the island life.

⚠️ The beets must be boiled, peeled and cubed. I used 2 large beets.

➡️ Chop onions, garlic, ginger. Sautée in olive oil until soft and cooked.
➡️ Add coconut milk and beets. Boil a few minutes. All the ingredients are cooked, so no need for long boiling, just to marry the flavor of the coconut milk.
➡️ Turn heat off. Add the lime juice, salt, pepper and chopped cilantro. I used 2 limes and a whole bunch of fresh cilantro.

Ready to serve, enjoy! I like to eat some crackers or pretzels with my beets soup. Optional 😋

I'm going to prepare it looks very delicious. I like new culinary ideas.

Oh yay! This looks just as good as the salad! I love the Caribbean flavors in this. I have used beets in a curry with coconut milk before, but I love the idea of pairing it with the lime and cilantro, as well. Save me a bowl because my beet soup is gone! ;)

You got it girl 👧🥰 The lime/cilantro is the bomb!!!!

I love beetroot soups!

Try this recipe, it is divine. 🙂

I do love beets and a beet soup I know I would love

Another thing in common, OMG. You must try this recipe, it is unusual, with a delicate and refined flavor. I updated the original recipe that called for parsley, no lime. I prefer cilantro and I added the lime for some acidity. It makes a huge difference, I can eat a lot of this soup... til my belly burst... 😂😅🤣

I have book marked it and will for sure try it sometime ;)

In the fall me and my partner make borscht (beet soup, polish) in the fall when our beets are ready.. and I NEVER though of Adding coconut water/milk in and it sounds delish!!! We also like a dalop of sour cream when we're ready to eat a bowl. Mmmm now I'm craving borscht. I'll need to take one out of the freezer this week!!

wow it looks delicious my friend..
