Recipe : summer soup with beetroot, gazpacho style

Version française

Fresh, sweet, pink, seasonnal and just delicious, this is the cold beetroot soup !

The high season of the red beetroot is from July to october but because it’s easy to grow early ones and relatively easy to preserve, it’s definitely possible to benefit from its nutrients much longer (store in a fresh dark room). Beetroots are full of vitamins and minerals. They are recommended for people suffering from anemia but not recommended for people suffering from diabetes because of their high sugar content.

And to learn how to grow them yourself : here it is !
