Red Winter Soup

Don’t pay any attention to the veg in the background, that was my new Able and Cole delivery in which I got five beetroot.

The slightly warmer weather in the UK has led me to think that Christmas is just around the corner, this means for us unseasonable temperatures and winter veg. So I thought to myself red soup! its a must as I have the perfect veg for that colour “beetroot”
