Simple guide for cooking beet soup.
|1||pc||onion (or shalott)|
|50||ml||dry white wine|
Decide on a variant of preparation.
-> Boil beet first
-> Process raw beet directly into soup.
Chop the peeled, cooked or raw beet into small pieces.
Sauté with the diced onion in a pot with half of the butter for about 5 minutes until colorless.
Chill the remaining butter in the freezer for blending the soup.
Deglaze the soup stock with the white wine, fill up with the vegetable stock and bring to the boil.
Add the cream to the boiling liquid and season with nutmeg, caraway, salt and pepper.
Let the soup simmer gently for 5-20 minutes, the vegetables should be cooked until soft.
Just before serving, add the ice-cold butter to the soup and blend with a hand blender.
Garnish with freshly chopped parsley or with finely chopped turnip greens and serve.
You can supplement the soup with beet pieces as a soup garnish.

3. Cook Beetroot Soup from Fresh Turnips
The soup, prepared from fresh beets tastes absolutely brilliant.
It is incomparable in taste and effect!
The beets you buy at the market, pay attention to the beet herb, the fresher the beet comes out of the ground, the more powerful is the herb of the beet.
Beet only existed until 2006, due to the spelling reform one “e” disappeared. The old spelling is still very common.
Either you cook the beetroot whole in boiling salted water or if you want to do it quickly, peel the beetroot raw with gloves, cut it into small pieces and then make soup out of it.
Use beet leaves:Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt
The leaves and stalks, the turnip greens you can blanch and also use for the soup.
Alternative: Process the turnip greens in a smoothie!
4. Prepare Beetroot Soup from pre-cooked Beetroot
I do not use beet from the jar for the soup.
-> This is beet salad with vinegar.
In many regions you can buy beet pre-cooked, which are vacuumed and cooked beets in a plastic bag.
You can use these for the soup as well, but unfortunately they never come close to the taste of fresh beet.
5. Beetroot Ingredients and Effect
The beetroot belongs to the goosefoot family and is directly related to spinach and chard.
Spinach and beetroot are cousins, who would have thought that?
According to folk medicine, beetroot is said to be a real miracle weapon against cancer.
You can read from various sources:
Drinking beetroot juice in large quantities can cure cancer and leukaemia.
In any case, in recent times it has become more and more apparent that many ingredients of beetroot are classified as anti-cancer substances
The beetroot soup is the vegetarian anti flu soup!Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt
Beetroot is really healthy:
They contain natural carbohydrates, little protein, the amino acids asparagine, glutamine, betaine (stimulates liver and bile, has an antibacterial effect), plus potassium, magnesium, sodium (excess base), iron and copper (good for blood formation), vitamins A, B, C, folic acid and pantothenic acid, bioflavones (protect vitamins and improve cellular respiration), betanidin, rutin (betanidin strengthens the walls of the capillaries with rudin) and choline (cholesterol component – makes fat more liquid and prevents accumulation on the arteries).
The juice and soup of the beetroot are alkaline and balance out!Chef Thomas Sixt knocks out another one… 🙂
In summary, beetroot stimulates the liver and bile, helps lower cholesterol, strengthens the immune system and strengthens the blood vessels.
The best thing about it is: beetroot simply tastes delicious!
