The gorgeous, festive colour and rich velvety texture of this wintry soup make it the perfect choice for Christmas Day. You can make it ahead of time and simply reheat on the big day and best of all, it’s completely Free! Start off by peeling and chopping all the vegetables.
You can save time by using ready-cooked beetroot – just make sure it’s fresh not pickled. Spray a non-stick pan with low-calorie cooking spray and then fry over a medium heat for a few minutes. Add the sweetener, bay leaf and stock, and simmer until all the vegetables are soft.
Save a few beetroot cubes for garnish, and then blend the soup until smooth. Serve with fat-free fromage frais, beetroot cubes and herbs. At Slimming World no food or drink is forbidden, so the variety is endless and there’s always plenty to eat – which is great news at Christmas!
