Prep time

Cook time



  • 2 tbsp butter, ghee or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 brown onions, peeled & roughly diced
  • 3–4 cloves garlic, peeled & chopped
  • 2 heaped tbsp fresh ginger, peeled & finely chopped
  • 1 tsp freshly grated turmeric (½ tsp if using dry)
  • 3 medium beetroots (about size of a tennis ball), peeled & cut into roughly the same sized pieces
  • 2 large carrots, diced
  • 1 green apple, peeled & diced
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable stock/broth
  • Good pinch sea salt & black pepper, to taste
  • 270mL tin coconut milk
  • Parsley & lemon wedges, to serve


  • In medium-sized pot, heat butter over low heat and add onion, garlic and ginger. Sauté for 10 mins (do not brown).
  • Add turmeric, beetroot, carrot, apple and stock and season well. Bring to boil and reduce to slow simmer for about 15 mins or until beetroot is tender.
  • Allow to cool a little and place in high-speed blender or food processor with coconut milk (reserving ¼ can to serve). Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. If you have particularly earthy beets, you can add a tsp or two of sweetener (coconut syrup or rice-malt syrup) to counterbalance.
  • Garnish with parsley and reserved coconut milk and serve with wedge of lemon (this really complements the flavour of this soup).
