Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of raw beetroot (about 700g), trimmed, bigger ones halved
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra to serve
  • 50g butter
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 600ml vegetable stock
  • finely grated zest of ½ orange
  • 1 tbsp mustard seeds

Step by step

Get ahead
Make the soup up to 2 days ahead; chill. It can also be frozen
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Put the beetroot in a roasting tin, drizzle with the oil and roast for 1 hour or until tender.
  2. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Wearing rubber gloves, rub the beetroot to remove the skin, then discard it. Roughly chop the beetroot and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in a pan, add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes until soft and beginning to colour. Add the vinegar; simmer for 3 minutes. Add the stock and beetroot and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes.
    Tip
    If you would like this to be a gluten-free recipe, pleasure ensure that your vegetable stock is guaranteed gluten-free.
  4. Meanwhile, toast the zest and mustard seeds in a dry frying pan for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  5. Remove the soup from the heat and season. Blitz in a blender until smooth. Ladle the soup into mini mugs or bowls and top with the zest and mustard seeds. Drizzle with a little olive oil.
