Beetroot and coconut soup

 

Ingredients 
2 onions
4 celery sticks
1 lime
6 large beetroot (or 8-10 smaller ones)
300ml coconut milk
200ml vegetable stock
Method 
1) De-stalk the beetroot and roast in a roasting tin for 45-50 minutes until softened.  Remove, cool and remove the dirty outside skin with a small sharp knife (& ideally wearing disposable gloves to save your hands!)
2) Peel & chop the onions and sweat them in a large pan with some olive oil / rapeseed oil.
3) Before they start to colour add the chopped celery to the pan and sweat for a couple of minutes
4) Add the cooled beetroot, & the vegetable stock and simmer for 10 minutes or until the beetroot is nice and soft.
5) Add the coconut milk & bring to a gentle simmer for 2-3 minutes. Remove and leave to cool slightly.
6) Blitz with a hand liquidiser.   Season well (coconut milk & beetroot are both quite sweet so this dish does need quite a lot of salt).  Taste & then either cool & reheat just before serving or serve straightaway.
7) To finish serve with a squeeze of lime.
