Beet and apple soup

Updated on April 1, 2013

A colorful and super healthy winter soup

Please take note that depending on where you live beet is called beetroot

Serves 4


100 grams onion

700 grams raw beets (1 1/2 pounds)

1 tbsp. olive oil

800 ml vegetable stock

2 firm apples (preferably sour tasting)

4 tbsp. lemon juice

Salt & pepper to taste

20 grams freshly grated horseradish or 1 tbsp. creamed horseradish or sour cream (optional)

4 tbsp. pumpkin seed oil or a handful of roasted pumpkin seeds (optional)


  • Finely chop onion.
  • Peel beet and cut into 1 cm (1/2 inch cubes). Use a glass cutting board or a plate as the red juice stains wooden boards. Also be careful that you don't spill any on your clothes.
  • Sauté onion and beet in a tbsp. of olive oil (approx. 5 minutes).
  • Add vegetable stock, cover the pot with a lid and simmer at low heat for 15-20 minutes.
  • Peel and core apples and cut into big chunks.
  • Let soup cool down a bit and purée in food processor together with apple chunks and lemon juice.
  • Pour back into pot and re-heat.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour into soup plates or bowls and garnish with grated horseradish and pumpkin seed oil (optional). Alternatively garnish with sour cream and roasted pumpkin seeds or anything else that looks pretty.

PS: This soup keeps well in the fridge for 1-2 days or in the freezer for approx. 6 months. I usually make a double portion and freeze the leftovers.

      Interesting! I like beet juice, but I suppose the soup will be more flavorful. Thanks for sharing.

      I have never heard of the apple addition. I love beet soup. This must be light and sunny, good for the summer months!
