Beetroot soup is traditional Polish soup we put on table during Christmas Eve. However with a bit of creamy we eat it from time to time throughout the year. With potatoes.... yum ! I decided to change it a bit. Because I am vegan I needed to avoid adding cream. Coconut milk, I thought. Let's add ginger and we will see. Soup is creamy, a little bit spicy and sweet.
I always cook my own stock. I prefer fresh and healthy. Also they do not herbal stocks. I you can add any stock you want, home made or bought. —monaturalnie
