healthy_eatingThis colourful soup will be sure to impress when you serve it up. Beetroot’s amazing red hue is unlike any other vegetable.
Earthy red beetroots are a great vegetable to eat when you are trying to lose weight. They contain vitamins A, some B vitamins, C, folic acid, iron and calcium.
They are also low GI meaning they are less likely to affect your blood sugar levels.
This soup is great as it tastes rich and creamy while only using a small amount of yoghurt or light sour cream. The horseradish pairs well with the earthy beets and the apple gives it a light sweetness.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, peeled and diced
