Roasted Beetroot, Shallot & Garlic Soup

ENTCS Roasted Beetroot Soup Recipe - a quick and easy lunch idea full of nutrients

Beetroot is a highly nutritious vegetable that’s often underestimated in the kitchen. Not only is it rich in vitamin A, C and B9, but it also contains a lot of calcium, iron and potassium. What’s the quickest way to introduce it into your kitchen? Make an easy and delicious beetroot soup! Roasting the veggies beforehand creates a rich and distinctive taste and takes away a lot of work. Check out the video as well to see how quick this roasted beetroot soup actually is!

Scottish Shortbread


After over 10 years of teaching here at the Edinburgh New Town Cookery School, we have made a lot of shortbread. And we mean, a lot! Probably enough to fill our kitchen and then some more. The reason is simple – this is how we greet our students at the beginning of each course. It’s a lovely tradition which resulted in so many requests to share our recipe. The great news is, it’s a quick and easy recipe which you’ll be able to recreate at home in a flash!  Have a look at the video and follow Fiona for the most buttery, delicate shortbread you’ll ever try!
