Beet-Carrot Soup | Healthy Soup Recipe


Yes, I am the person who loves beets as not only it is healthy but loves the perfect sweetness and color to any dish. I make beetroot-carrot soup in pressure cooker. Making this in pressure cooker not only reduces cooking time but retains the nutritive value also. Just imagine the sweetness of beets incorporated with ginger ummm delicious. This bright colored soup doesn't have any fat not even butter !

Some more Beetroot recipes from past:

Ingredients:
2 Beetroots, stem removed
2 Carrots
1 big Tomato
1 Onion
1/2 inch Ginger
3 Garlic pods
5-6 Black pepper balls
1 tsp Cornflour (if required)
Salt as required
3 glasses of water

Lemon juice (optional) while garnishing with some chopped coriander leaves

Method:
Peel the beetroots, carrots and wash under running water.  Cut the beets in half and cut them in large chunks. Chop roughly the carrots also. In a pressure cooker add everything except cornflour and stir well. Close the lid of the cooker and cook on low flame till 2 whistles. Once the steam is released, then strain it. Puree the content in a blender once it is cool down completely. 

If you want your soup to be free of any remaining skins of tomato or seeds then strain again. Put it back on burner and cook on slow flame for next 3-4 minutes. If the soup is having thin consistency then add cornflour in 2 tsp milk and make it lump free. Add this to the soup and remove from heat. Taste and season with salt and black pepper powder accordingly. Serve the soup hot by adding some lemon juice and chopped coriander leaves. Enjoy this delicious and healthy soup !
