Oni­ons are useful for reli­e­ving joint pain and repai­ring ten­dons and con­nec­ti­ve tis­sue. Car­rots are a quick source of glu­co­se bound to mine­rals and vit­amins. Pota­toes are rich in ami­no acids that inhi­bit the growth of viruses.

Ingre­di­ents for 4–6 ser­vings:

  • 500 g white cab­ba­ge, gra­ted or cut into thin slices
  • 500 g bee­troot, pee­led and gra­ted or fine­ly diced (orga­nic beets are best)
  • 1 lar­ge oni­on, fine­ly diced
  • 2 medi­um car­rots, pee­led and gra­ted or fine­ly diced
  • 4 cloves of gar­lic, fine­ly chopped
  • 2 lar­ge pota­toes, gra­ted or fine­ly diced
  • 1.5L Heal­ing broth or Vege­ta­ble broth
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 1–2 tbsp fresh­ly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1–2 tbsp map­le syrup
  • sea-salt (optio­nal), to taste
  • 2–3 tbsp coar­se­ly chop­ped dill or pars­ley, for serving

For the cas­hew cream:


Place a lar­ge, non­stick cera­mic pot over medi­um-high heat. Add bee­troot, white cab­ba­ge, car­rots and oni­ons. Sau­té until vege­ta­bles begin to sof­ten, about 8–10 minu­tes. Add the gar­lic and pota­toes and cook for ano­ther minu­te until the gar­lic is fragrant.

Stir in the bay leaf and medi­cinal broth. Bring the liquid to a boil, then redu­ce the heat and sim­mer, cover­ed, until the vege­ta­bles are coo­ked, about 20–25 minu­tes. For a thin­ner con­sis­ten­cy, add a litt­le more medi­cinal broth or water.

Remo­ve the pot from the heat and stir in the lemon juice, map­le syrup and sea salt. Tas­te and adjust the sea­so­ning – the soup should be slight­ly sweet and sour.

For the sour cas­hew cream, put all the ingre­di­ents in a blen­der and puree until smooth. If neces­sa­ry, add a litt­le more water until the desi­red con­sis­ten­cy is reached.

To ser­ve, divi­de the soup into bowls and gar­nish with cas­hew cream (if using) and dill or pars­ley. Ser­ve immediately.

Bon appe­tit!
