I made this for my Valentines dinner party last year and it was an absolute hit with all my guests (and myself hehe). The colour is so vibrant and fun and taste is rich and warming. Definitely making this again sometime - and so are several of my friends after I passed on the recipe. 🤍
Oh gosh, this beet soup was utterly delicious. I served it to company and they loved it too. I 'finished' mine with lime zest yoghurt drizzle, toasted pumpkin & pecan seeds, and a sprig of dill. A beautiful dish worthy of company or any weeknight meal -- thank you.
I had never tried beetroot soup before, but I thought I'd give it a try and I'm glad I did! Yet another amazing recipe :)
My family and I made this soup yesterday for dinner because we had a big beetroot in the fridge. I made a few changes though: I swaped sweet potatoes for regular white potatoes since they are not available now and I also changed coconut milk for soy milk, because I don't really like coconut.
The soup turned out amazing! We'll be making it again for sure.
hey, can i make it of white beetroot ? xd That's what i got from Too good to Go ! ;)
Altough it wasn't as vibrant color on the pictures of Pick Up Limes, it sure tastes amazing!! And incredibly easy to make. Recommanding it to friends a lot! :)
(to share the PUL-love!)
Hi ! I am planning on making this one tomorrow. I wanted to ask if you have any idea of how cashew cream would do instead of coconut milk in this one. I am kind of intolerant to coconut milk/cream. Also thanks for all the work you do. Heartiest wishes and prayers your way PUL team <3
When I made this soup for Christmas with my friends and housemates, I proclaimed I had communed with the soup god. Thank you so much for this simple, low cost soup! The hardest part was finding enough Tupperware to store it for the next day’s festivities and stomachs!
(I have finally come to terms with my lactose intolerance and have been making more and more of PUL dishes and they keep bringing me so much joy—thank you!)
Hi! Do you think butternut squash could work in this recipe?
So tasty and easy. We added carrots and a touch of curry powder. Will definitely make again soon!
I made this soup today with some fresh beetroots from our garden and it's the best! We will make it again.
Best recipe of beetroot soop
Very delicious! But i struggle with the size of the sweetpotatoes, all the time. The taste is always good, but can you please tell me the weight? In the video they look very big.
This is easily one of my favorite recipes. Currently a Pescatarian trying to eat more vegan meals and I cannot get enough of this. I love PickUpLimes!!
Delicious. I had yams that needed to be cooked. This was a delicious surprise. Will definitely make it again.
I loved it… Thanks a lot!
Cette soupe est délicieusement crémeuse et onctueuse! Merci pour cette recette que je refais chaque semaine en cette saison froide.
Hi. Made this and it was great. Regarding the nutritional info, how many ml per serving? Thanks
This is incredible!!
Hi, could I swap fresh beetroots for canned? And if so, what’s the serving I should use i.e. one can or two cans?
Hi Sadia! I wish you all the best for 2022!
I have one question concerning this dish. I want to make this beetroot soup, but can you just use fresh beetroots like you do and cook them only for 15 minutes? Because I thought that fresh beetroots need more than one hour to cook. Or can I also use pre-cooked beetroots?
Many thanks for your answer!
Can u use pre-cooked beetroots as well?
Question for you! I love all the ingredients in this soup but I don't have an immersion blender. Could I just not blend it and eat it as a hearty stew instead? Do you think it would still work?
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!
I made this soup today and it is fabulous, it will definitely go into my favourite soup recipes.
Can’t wait to serve it as it looks so elegant.
First time making a beetroot dish. Amazing success !
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! :-)
