Beetroot soup with Wasabi

12 comments Nov 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Soups

This is a wonderful fall-soup. I don’t only love the colour but also the taste of this beetroot soup. It is a bit of a freestyle food version of a classical beetroot soup. The Wasabi gives it a touch of spice that warms you up on cold fall and winter days. This simple soup recipe is a must for soup and beetroot lovers.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Very simple recipe


  • 1/2 kilo of beetroot, boiled and peeled
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • a spoon of honey
  • Salt and fresh pepper
  • a tiny bit of Wasabi
  • 750 ml of vegetable soup
  • a touch of cumin


Brown the onions in a sip of olive oil. Add the honey and stir. Ad the chopped garlic and brown it lightly.
Cube the beetroot and add it to the frying pan. Add the vegetable stock and let the soup boil for 15-20 minutes.

Pure with a mixer.

Season with salt, pepper and a bit of Wasabi. Be careful with the Wasabi.

Tip: If you like thick soups you can add some cubed potato in the beginning.

The German version of this cooking reciipe can be found here.

  3. Vibrant colours and lovely taste.

  4. Tobias, indeed….great minds think alike! I’ve always liked beets and I don’t understand some peoples’ aversion to it.

  5. A lovely soup! Great combo!



  6. Hola Tobias!
    Thanks for leaving a comment in my blog and nice to meet you :D

    Beetroot is something I have yet to try and your recipe looks so delicious that I will look for some at the Friday Street Market. Thanks.

    Thanks for showing my blog link at your blog roll. I’ll do the same for you :D

  7. Lovely soup Tobias. I love beets but have never made them into a soup. Will have to try soon as I know it is a classic dish and yet one that I have seen updated quite a bit lately.

  8. The addition of wasabi is terrific! I would love this soup!

  9. I love beets and although I had a bad experience with wasabi, just a little bit would add a lovely spicy touch to the soup.

  11. I had a similar soup at a French restaurant recently for my 5th wedding anniversary. Had to look it up and found your recipe. Can’t wait to try this out. What would you recommend as a garnish? Parsley? Anyone have any ideas?

  12. A few drops of cream might do fro deco. Or finely chopped parsley.
