Hea supp päästab alati päeva / A Good Soup always saves the Day



Ma armastan väga suppe. Kooreseid mereannisuppe, tummiseid seljankasid, maitseküllaseid borshe, hapukaid kapsasuppe, vürtsikaid aasiapäraseid suppe, klassikaliseid kanasuppe jne jne. Igal supiarmastajal peab alati olema käepärast üks hea 15-minuti-supi mõte, mis päästab iga päeva, midagi lihtsat, kiiret ja aromaatset kergeks õhtusöögiks, päästvaks peojärgseks hommikusöögiks või tervislikuks lõunaks. Aastaid oli minu jaoks selleks supiks tomati-basiiliku supp, aga mu legendaarse lemmiku on sellel sügisel troonilt lükanud imekiire peedi-loorberi supp.

I love soups. Creamy seafood soups, thick meat soups, tasty borsches, tangy sauerkraut soups, spicy asian soups, classic chicken soups, etc. etc. Every soup lover needs to have a quick-fix idea for a 15-minute-soup, that will come in and save the day. Something quick and aromatic for a light dinner, a morning after or a healthy lunch. For years the tomato-basil soup used to be that soup for me, but this fall my legendary favourite has been overthrown by a beetroot-bay leaf soup. I´ve made it many times already and I just don`t seem to get tired of it.

Peedi-loorberi supp / Beetrood Bay-leaf Soup

1 värske peet / 1 fresh beet-root
1 suur kartul / 1 big potato2 porgandit / 2 carrots
1 sibul / 1 onion
brokkolit (valikuline) / some broccoli (optional)
1 loorberileht / 1 bay leaf
soola ja pipart / salt and pepper
1 puljongikuubik (valikuline) / 1 cube of chicken-broth

Kõik tuleb viilutada imeõhukesteks viiludeks (võib isegi kasutada kartulikoorijat), lükata potti ja kiiresti keeta. Supi värv on imeilus ja maitse vürtsikas ja hapukas. mmm.

Slice everything into thin slices (I sometimes use the peeler) and boil quickly. The colour is fantastic and it smells and tastes SO nice - tangy, spicy, sour. YUM.

What a cute soup. Love root vegetable , particularly the color of beetroot. I usually just bake them with salt and herbs. Never made a beetroot soup... Looks very yummy, thanx for sharing. Will save this for cold winter days (and here in Sweden, we have tons of those... (beetroot overdose ;-)
