Detoxifying beetroot soup

The vibrant red hue of this soup comes from beetroot, a vegetable which has great detoxifying properties. It is very easy to make and require common ingredients such as carrot, tomato and onion.

Ingredients
(Serves 3)

200g pork ribs
1/2 carrot, skin removed, cut to small chunks
1 tomato, cut to wedges
1 small beetroot, skin removed, cut to small chunks
3 stalks of celery, cut to small slices
1/2 big onion, cut to rings
1200ml water
salt to taste (optional)

Directions
Blanch pork ribs in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. Boil water in pot and add the blanched ribs together with the rest of the ingredients to boiling water. Lower fire and simmer for about 40 minutes. Add salt to taste if required.

  2. I like beetroot too! I shred them into my salads, it’s sweet and crunchy and most importantly, healthy!

  9. I was looking for something like this..
    Read its very nutritioys .. occasionally see beetroot in supermarkets & bought home , but dont know how to prepare it until it spoils & throw away..
    I shall surely buy a few beets home & test your recipe out . Thanks !

  10. Hi, may I know if I can replace the pork ribs with minced pork if I do not have pork ribs? Thanks!

    • pork ribs will give the soup more flavour imho, but u can use a ready soup stock with seasoned minced pork too.
