This is the time of year I get borderline obsessed with blended soups – I find that I crave the texture and they are an excellent way to get some extra bone broth in. I like to double this recipe and have some to heat up for breakfast with my leftover meat. This one also freezes well (sans avocado), so it would make a lovely addition to a batch cooking routine.

Serves: 4
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 large fennel bulb, ends removed and sliced thinly
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece ginger, peeled and minced
  • 2 pounds beets, peeled and cut into 1½-inch chunks
  • 3 cups bone broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • fennel fronds, for garnish
  1. In a heavy-bottomed pot, heat the coconut oil and sauté the fennel for about 12 minutes, or until it softens. Add the ginger and garlic to the pot and cook for a few more minutes, stirring.
  2. Add the broth, beets, bay leaf, and salt. Bring to a boil, cover, and turn down to a simmer. Cook for 1 hour 15 minutes, or until the beets are tender.
  3. In a high-powered blender or food processor, blend until desired consistency is reached, adding more broth if needed. Serve warm, with fennel fronds to garnish.

    I just made this and it is super delicious, nutritious and simple to make! I didn’t have any garlic so I omitted it and it still taste great! I also use regular chicken broth. If you like healthy eating this soup is perfect! Thank you for the recipe!

    I’m sensitive to fennel so I subbed in celery and then chopped up the beet greens as well since I was experimenting already. Delicious! I see the photo has avocado; may use it & serve it cold. Any experience with eating it cold, too?

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Rory – great modification! Yes, you can eat this one cold as well, very refreshing in the summer!

    Any thoughts on Instant Pot conversion? Sautee then pressure cook for…?

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Leslie! I have not made this soup in an IP before, but I would start with maybe 5 minutes cooking time?
