Whether they’re grated or thinly shaved, beets are wonderful to eat raw; you get much more of that sweet flavour than when it’s cooked. But it doesn’t have to be all about beet salads — I have tried beetroot with apple from the recipe book “Healing Soups”. Surprisingly, it was flavoursome!

Beets are low in calories and a great source of nutrients, including fiber, iron, folate and vitamin C. Beets also contain nitrates, magnesium and pigments that may help lower blood pressure (1), prevent dementia (2) and may improve digestion (3)!

Hope you’re convinced with its many health benefits – you should try it!

Be kind to your liver; the body’s largest organ, by making a batch of this liver-cleansing beetroot soup.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

3 apples, peeled, cored and chopped

625 g (1 1/4 lb) cooked beetroot, roughly chopped

2 teaspoons caraway seeds (I use dill as substitute)

4-5 fresh thyme sprigs (tastier than dried thyme)

1.5 litres vegetables stock

salt and pepper

creme fraiche, to serve (use greek yoghurt as substitute)

chopped dill, to garnish (coriander as substitute)

Method:

Heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan and fry the apples for 2-3 minutes until golden. Add the cooked beetroot, dill and thyme and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the stock, bring to the boil then cook for 10 minutes.

Blend the soup until fairly smooth and season t taste. Ladle into bowls and serve with a swirl of creme fraiche and garnished its chopped dill or coriander.

Simple Reminder: Cutting down on alcohol and caffeine and avoiding processed food will help to cleanse your body and improve wellbeing.

Enjoy!
