Beetroot and potato soup

Soup Serves 4 1h 10 min
Thick and creamy, but still healthy, this vegetarian soup is very simple to cook. The potato starch gives body, the beets sweetness and the lemon juice adds a lovely sharp base note. Enjoy it with a swirl of sour cream or yoghurt and a hearty slice of bread.
