Method

00:45
 
Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil with the whole beetroots and cook until tender (about 30-45 minutes depending on the size). Rinse beets under cold water and pull the skins off – they should come off easily. Cut the roots off and slice into quarters.

Heat the butter in a large frying pan and saute the leeks until softened. Add the stock and simmer for 5 minutes.
Place beets, leeks, stock, herbs and cream into a food processor and blend until smooth and silky. Season to taste. Add more prepared stock if too thick.
Chill or serve warm with crumbed goat’s cheese and micro herbs.
