Beetroot soup. Yummy and healthy. No cornflour or bread or any flour added. Used 1 cucumber to get a creamy thick texture.

If you are on strict dieting omit the butter and enjoy hot or cold.
This post is going to be a part of #foodiemonday #bloghop theme is soup.

I choose beetroot. It is low in fat. Full of vitamins and minerals and packed with powerful antioxidants.
