Beets & Yogurt Soup Recipe by Chef Vikas Khanna
Healthy low fat yogurt soup with beetroot
The Beets & Yogurt Soup by Chef Vikas Khanna is great comforting winter soup especially when there is a surplus of root vegetables. The potatoes add a very nice creamy texture and thickness to this soup while the earthy flavor and a vibrant ruby red color comes from beets. Garnishing with yogurt swirls adds to the presentation of this soup.

To begin making the Beet and Yogurt Soup recipe, heat oil in a heavy bottomed skillet on medium high heat.
Add the cumin, coriander, beets, onions, pepper, and potato, into a large saucepan and cook until very fragrant, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the stock, salt and pepper and bring it to a boil.
Cover the pan, reduce the heat to low, and simmer until the vegetables are cooked through, for 15 to 20 minutes.
Gently transfer the mixture to a blender or a food processor and blend to a purée in batches.
