Tomato, beetroot and carrot soup

tomato, beetroot and carrot soupThis is a hearty, filling and tasty soup. It is a variation of the tomato soup that we make very often at home. Adding carrot and beetroot up its nutritional quotient and the beetroot lends a beautiful colour to it. I basically just chop everything, put it in the pressure cooker and then blend and sieve it.

Here’s the easy recipe:

Makes 4 servings


1/2 Kg. tomatoes

1 small beetroot

2 red carrots (I prefer the sweeter Delhi carrots in season now)

1 small onion

5-6 small cloves garlic

1 inch ginger

1/2 tsp. Black pepper

1/2 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. butter


Croutons to serve


Peel and cut all the vegetables into small pieces. Add chopped onion, garlic and ginger with a little salt and water and pressure cook for two whistles. Take it out and blend it well to a smooth paste. Sieve it and put the soup back on fire. Add the butter and let it dissolve. Now ad oregano and black pepper to taste. You could add a little sugar if the tomatoes are too sour. I didn’t need to as the sweetness of the carrots balanced it out.

Adjust seasoning to taste. Serve hot with croutons. I generally toast the bread with butter. You could deep fry the bread pieces for home-made croutons. You will enjoy this one especially in the chilly evenings of winter. Enjoy.

  1. I have made something similar when I was on an all-liquid diet for about 2 months last year. Soups saved my life πŸ™‚ This one looks delicious. Definitely going to try making it.

  2. Okay. I am really intrigued and will certainly be trying this out. I have heard of cold beetroot soups from friends in Russia during their days there… but this combo sounds really good – in the end, which flavour did you feel predominates with this recipe? The tomato/beetroot?

    1. So did you like the arbi with a twist? You can easily skip oregano and it won’t alter the taste much. These are my little additions to the recipe. πŸ™‚
