EXECUTION

Roughly chop the beetroot, onion and carrots and transfer them to a roasting tin. Add the garlic and the ginger (whole).
Drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic cream, cover with foil and roast for about 40 minutes at 200°C.
Remove from the oven and while still hot, puree with the coriander, celery, balsamic cream, olive oil, pepper, salt and stock. If necessary, thin with a little more stock.
Serve in bowls, adding some yogurt, walnuts, a few drops of olive oil and chopped coriander.

Tips: Instead of roasting the vegetables, you can sauté them lightly and boil them until they are soft.
