The hot hot weather demands a cold soup for lunch and I’m quite happy to oblige. This silky Beetroot and Yogurt Soup requires no cooking and comes together in a blender. 

All you need to do is roast some beets and garlic in the oven, add these and a few other ingredients to the food processor and leave to chill in the refrigerator. Enjoy this with some crusty bread and olive oil, or a bowl of salad.

I’ve used potato and a slice of bread to thicken the soup. Using stale bread is a technique used to give body to Gazpacho,  and it works beautifully here as well. Even if you are not a Beetroot fan, this sliky concoction is sure to convert you. Do give it a try!
