tomato, beetroot and carrot soup

This is a hearty, filling and tasty soup. It is a variation of the tomato soup that my mum used to make back home in UP. 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

Ingredients

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

salt

Croutons to serve

Recipe:

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 🙂 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?

  3. to me beetroot is a favourite so is tomatoes ,its richness in colour flavour and tanginess gets into me ,have you heard of beetroot in masala dosa ,well the Indian coffee house chains make that as a speciality ,started when potatoes were very costly and beetroots were found in abundance !
