Nothing beats the vibrant, hearty, earthiness of fresh beetroot, and the best way to retain the natural sweetness and intensify the flavour is to roast them, which we’ve done along with the carrots, red onion and garlic.
This recipe makes quite a thick soup, but if you prefer it a bit thinner then just add a little more water or stock.

How many Syns are in this Syn Free Roasted Garlic and Beetroot Soup?
This Syn Free Roasted Garlic and Beetroot Soup is, as the name suggests, Syn Free…..In fact, it’s pretty much a bowl of Speed food.
There are a few things you can use to garnish this soup, including parsley, grated beetroot and carrot.
We’ve used a swirl of fat free natural yogurt, some rocket and a sprinkling of crumbled reduced fat feta, which is around 1 Syn for 10g.
Whatever you choose don’t forget to check the Syn value and adjust it accordingly.
You’ll also have to leave out the yogurt if you are following SP or a dairy free diet.
How do I make this Syn Free Roasted Garlic and Beetroot Soup?
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Wash the beetroot and trim off any stalks. Then cut them into quarters.
Peel the carrots, cut them in half lengthways then cut each long piece in half. Next, peel the onion and cut into quarters. Peel the garlic and leave the cloves whole.
Put all the veg and the bay leaves in a big bowl, spray with Frylight. Add the balsamic vinegar, then sprinkle with the cumin.
Stir well and tip the contents on to an oven tray. Roast for an around hour or until the veg is soft.
When the veg is cooked remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. When it is cool enough to handle peel the beetroot.
Put all the veg (and any liquid from the tray) into a big bowl and add half the stock. Blitz in a food processor or using a stick blender.
Keep adding more of the stock until it reaches a soup consistency (you can make it as smooth as you like)
If it’s still a little thick then add some more water.
Pour into a pan and heat through gently. Check the seasoning, and add some salt and pepper if necessary.
Serve topped with a drizzle of fat free yogurt and some rocket. You could even add some crumbled feta (but don’t forget to count the Syns!)
