I procrastinated for quite some time deciding what to call this soup. Oh the perils of being a blogger. My nails are painted, my soup is in my belly and my tea
cup vessel is empty. I first came across this delightful soup during my beautiful stay at Moknton Wyld, somewhere I have been dreaming of a lot recently. Both night time dreams and day dreaming. Oh boy I miss that place. I thought about calling the soup Monkton Soup, Cranks Borscht (I found the recipe in the Cranks book)… I settled upon Broken Heart Borscht because today I feel a little melancholy, a little blue. I have had much time to think recently and I miss people and places. I feel like my life kind of at a little stand still at the moment. I am enjoying myself, however I feel like I am not being super proactive in taking steps to achieve my goals. I am just being. My life is happening, but I am living without intention. I feel like I need to spend a little time alone in nature to figure out what my true passion is, what is my greater good, how I can be the best version of me and how can I help others to do the same for themselves. I think I have been thinking too much recently.. This is why I love running so much, all of my thoughts are either silenced or worked through in a way they cannot be worked out when I am not in motion. I think this girl needs to go for a run now haha. I have just enough time to share my recipe and go for a quick run before my parents arrive this evening. I have a truly beautiful story about my parents to share with you guys, which I shall tomorrow providing they give me their consent.
To make this delectable soup you will need the following ingredients;
- 1 medium onion
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 small potato
- 450g raw beetroot
- 1 pint veg stock
- 1 tsp yeast extract
- 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- freshly ground nutmeg
- salt and pepper
You will also need a large pan and a blender.
First, wash and peel your beautiful beets. Admire the post washing beetroot bloodbath with awe.
Blend baby, blend. Until lovely, thick and smooth. You may want to add a little more water if it is too think. Add in your vinegar, yeast extract and freshly ground nutmeg. Meditate as you watch the yeast melt into the soup, this is a beautiful moment not to be missed.
I love to appreciate the small things in life. Treat yourself kindly, with the love and respect you treat others. Make yourself feel special. Appreciate the little things. You are a beautiful soul.
Love Olivia ♥
