Chilled Summer Soup

This is an awesome chilled vegan Summer Soup. Gone are the days when a chilled soup would be returned to the kitchen to be warmed up.


Chilled Summer Soup by Pieter Kotzé700g baby beets
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 medium red onion, sliced
1 bay leaf
2 cloves
1/8 tsp cayenne, or to taste
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar, or to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Cooking Instructions

  • Peel and slice the beetroots and put them in a large pot.
  • Cover with 4-5 cups of water and add the garlic, red onion, bay leaf, cloves, cayenne, sugar, vinegar, oil and salt.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, or until the beets are tender.
  • Check the seasoning of the broth. It should be distinctly sweet, sour, peppery and flavourful. Correct the seasoning, adding salt and cayenne if necessary, and freshly ground pepper. Cool slightly.
  • Cool slightly. Remove the bay leaf.
  • Purée the soup well in a blender, then strain into a large bowl.
  • Chill in the refrigerator or over ice until cold.
