    Guaranteed to beat off the winter blues, this hearty beetroot soup is served with creamy mashed potatoes enlivened with crunchy raw vegetables. There are as many types of borscht as there are cooks in Eastern Europe. The soup is often strained and served as a clear broth, but this puréed version retains every gram of goodness.

    This gorgeous vegetarian borscht is rich with beetroot and traditionally served in Poland on Christmas Eve. For extra flavour, add some garlic if you like, and for a heartier soup you can add dumplings.

    I will admit that I like thick soup. This recipe is based on one that I found in a lovely tapas book and tweaked a little. If you do not have sweet potatoes handy then just use ordinary potatoes. Also, you can add 2 cloves of garlic if you are so inclined and just use water rather than veg stock in the soup.

    A gorgeous, healthy and very tasty beetroot soup that's so simple to make. Beetroot, sautéed onions and garlic simmer in beef broth before being finished with a swirl of cream.

    Jarred beetroot are great for this recipe, making it ready in minutes. You can save the juice, freeze it and add it in place of the chilled water or ice. Try serving with a dollop of soured cream.
