It intreiged us both and we were won over when we tried it, a few weeks later my friend posted that she has a recipe for this soup so obviously I wanted to try it and asked for the recipe.
About a month passed and could I find any rubarb anywhere? Could I eck. Finally last week I managed to get my hands on some rubarb and try Jen's soup!
To make Jen's Rubarb and Beetroot soup you will need:
1 Red Onion
4 Beetroots (not pickled)
1 Litre Vegetable stock
A sprinkle of Cinnamon
A glug of orange juice (My addition)
A knob of ginger
I then put the kettle on and got my vegetable stock cubes out before adding roughly 1 litre of vegetable stock and a bit of cinnamon to the beetroot and onion. I got this lot boiling before reducing it to a simmer whilst I worked on the other half of the soup.
I checked the recipe again and realised I needed to add the carrot so I got it out of the fridge, washed it and chopped it up before popping it in the pan.
After doing that I grated the orange, then I moved on to the rubarb which I wasn't sure if I had to peel but apparently I don't. (Hurrah!)
After I thought the flavours had combined I chucked it into my food processor to make it a bit less lumpy.
I was lovely, nice and tangy! This is definately going into the repetoir!
