I missed this unfortunately, but I’m told it was one of the best things we’ve made for a while, and really pretty!
1 medium onion, finely diced
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 butternut squash, peeled and diced
1 large (or 2 small) golden beetroot, peeled and diced
1 inch fresh turmeric root*
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 1/2 litres vegetable stock
*I have no idea where this came from. I’m assuming for most normal people, a teaspoon or so of dried turmeric would probably suffice.
Soften the onion and garlic in a pan with a little oil
WEARING GLOVES unless bright yellow hands are your thing, scrape the peel from the turmeric root using a teaspoon. Chop the root finely or grate using a microplane** and add to pan
Add ginger and cook until aromatic
Add beetroot and squash and cook for 5 mins
Add the stock, cook through
Blend the soup, taste and season if required
**I’m guessing that isn’t a light aircraft, but otherwise not a clue.
