Cheesy Beetroot Tomato Soup

beetroot soup final 1

This soup is a complete meal itself. You can make it for dinner and have it with some buttered toasts. 

The beetroot and tomatoes lend a beautiful rich colour and depth to the soup and the sweetness of carrot balances the tanginess of tomatoes. 

A simple and healthy recipe, it does not take a lot of time to make it.
