  1. To a large pot on high heat, add the oil and onions, stirring occasionally for 5 - 7 minutes, until the onions caramelize. Add splashes of water as needed to deglaze the pan.
  2. Add the garlic and stir until golden, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients to the pot, except for the coconut milk, and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer with the lid partially covering the pot.
  4. Once the potatoes and beetroots are soft, about 15 minutes, remove the soup from the stove and puree until creamy using an immersion blender or standing blender.
  5. Return the pot to the stove and add the coconut milk. Stir to combine over low heat, allowing the soup to warm back up. Serve while hot. Enjoy!

Delicious. And I stole your formula to other creamy soups recipes. I add yams to make the creamy soup extra creamy and it works very well. For example, I make Broccoli soup with yam potatoes and blend it very well. My kids fell in love with this kind of broccoli soup :D Thanks a lot Pick up limes team!

This soup recipe by PUL is brilliant. Have made it quite a few times so far and it has always been satisfying to make and have this soup. Highly recommend trying!

Love this soup! It's comforting, nurturing and has this great earthy quality from the beetroots. When I first made this I was looking for a quick recipe to make with kitchen staples to comfort a friend - what can I say? It worked and I have made it many times since. :-) I often put more beetroots in (can't resist) and I tried some variations. I highly recommend adding a parsnip or two, if you happen to have one left over, or even mixing the sweet potatoes with regular ones if you don't have enough. We've also enjoyed a drizzle of lemon juice on top.
Long story short: I highly recommend trying this one! Thanks for sharing the recipe! :-)
