Method

Preparation time | 5 minutes
Total time | 25 minutes

  1. Clean, crush and chop the garlic. Peel, rinse and then cut the beet into pieces. Prepare a small bowl with the spices ready to ‘throw’ in.
  2. Bring water to a boil in a kettle.
  3. Take a soup pan and melt one or two table spoons of ghee or odourless coconut oil and place over a medium-low heat fire. Add garlic and cumin seeds. Stir for one minute. Add beetroot, ground cumin, ground coriander, chilli, salt and black pepper to the pan. Stir for one minute.
  4. Add boiling water. Taste the water after a minute or two and add spices and salt if needed. Let it simmer together for 25 minutes, until beets are done.
  5. Turn off the heat. Blend the soup until creamy and smooth, using good kitchen blender, adding a little more water if it is too thick to your taste.
  6. Cut a slice or two of the German sourdough bread and add to the plate to dip, together with half an avocado sprinkled with a tiny bit of salt before serving.
  7. Finish each soup bowl with a drizzle of ghee or olive oil just before serving.

Enjoy!
