In a saucepan heat the oil and sauté the onion and leek. Once the onion is transparent add the beetroot and sweet potato. Stir through over the heat for a minute or two.

Mix all the ingredients with a handheld bar mix, or transfer the mixture to a blender to whiz the soup to a smooth consistency.

Serve the soup hot or cold, with fresh dill, sea salt flakes and cracked pepper.

  • I stirred the dill through it, as I love dill cooked and soft and it was delish!!

    • We had so many beets and with the tender fresh dill as well as our reserved beans from the garden harvest this went down a treat for the theme of this week … I crushed some dill seed and sauted with the onion and leek and I also made my own stock. I am so pleased with how it turned out. thank you for the inspiration/

  • This was really easy to make and is tasty and healthy too! I used the dill in the squeezy tubes from the supermarket fridge as I didn’t have any fresh dill and the fresh dill flavour still came through. Thanks for the recipe!
