Beetroot 15 minutes
Cauliflower 10 minutes
Onion 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • about 200 g minced meat
  • 1 little yellow onion
  • 1 beetroot
  • 3 carrots
  • ½ broccoli
  • 1 small paprika
  • 1 small piece of celeriac
  • 1 small chili pepper
  • 1 liter of vegetable or meat stock

Fry the minced meat with onion. Flavour with salt, black pepper and paprika.

Peel and chop the beetroot, carrots and celeriac.

Heat up about one litre of vegetable/meat stock until it boils..

Start with celeriac and let it stew about 5minutes before adding beetroot, carrots and chopped garlic cloves. After another 5minutes add sweet pepper and chili. And finally after 10 minutes of stewing add broccoli and minced meat and then let the soup simmer about 10 minutes.
