Method

  1. Boil the beetroot in salted water, for at least an hour, depending on size, until it is cooked.
  2. Peel and cut into pieces.
  3. Place in a blender or food processor with all the other ingredients except for the salt and cream.
  4. Check for seasoning and add a little cold water if the soup is too thick.
  5. Chill and serve in cups or bowls, drizzled with a little cream.

Variations

If you cannot get fresh beetroot, you could try it using the pre cooked vacuum-packed stuff or some of the excellent organic beetroot juices now available. However, avoid like the plague the jarred beetroot in vinegar as it will make the gazpacho taste vile. If using juice, you may need to thicken it with some breadcrumbs.

Chef's notes

Make sure that the beetroot skins are intact or you will lose colour and flavour.
