For the soup

  • 4 medium beetroots
  • 4 cups hot vegetable stock
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk plus extra to serve
  • A generous pinch of sea salt

For the walnut croutons

  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 tsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, 180 degrees fan assisted.
  • Peel the beetroot and slice in half. Arrange on a shallow oven tray and drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil. Place in the oven to roast for 35-45 minutes until tender and caramelised.
  • Whilst the beetroot cooks you can prepare the walnut croutons. Add all the crouton ingredients to a small mixing bowl and stir together well to combine, ensuring the walnuts get evenly coated in the seasonings and seeds.

  • Once the beetroot is cooked, remove from the oven and set aside. Reduce the oven to 160 degrees Celsius, 140 degrees fan assisted.
  • Transfer the walnuts to the oven to bake for 15 minutes, turning halfway through. Set aside to cool completely.
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan over a low/medium heat and sweat the garlic and onion until tender.
  • Add the chopped rosemary and fresh ginger to the pan and stir to combine.
  • Dice the cooked beetroot and add to the pan, season with salt and pepper and stir well.
  • Add the hot vegetable stock to the pan and bring the soup to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the coconut milk to the pan and stir through the soup.
  • Transfer the soup to a blender and blend until silky smooth.
  • Scatter with walnut crotons to serve and an extra drizzle of coconut milk if desired.
