Beetroot and Leek Cream Soup

Beetroot is one of the healthiest veggies on the market, and now that it's autumn, we recommend serving it as often as possible. It is an excellent source of potassium and magnesium, helping lower blood pressure and cholesterol. We've made a cozy soup using it as the main ingredient, along with leek and onion, and seasoned it with rosemary and cumin.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
