Instructions

  1. Add the diced carrots, onions, celery and garlic add them to a pan. Sauteed them slowly (and without browning) on a low heat until cooked down. Add the beetroot and potato until partly cooked, then add the stock and season. Once this has been added to the mixture, simmer for 30 minutes.
