COOKING ON A BUDGET - Spiced Beetroot & Apple Soup with Soldiers
Serves 4
You can make soup with just about anything so if you don’t like beetroot swap it out for any veg: parsnips, celeriac, swede, celery, fennel, and more.. Ditto with the spice. Use ginger, curry powder, or simply a handful of herbs.
