Beet root is a kind of edible taproot with green leafy on the top. This is a local beet root, we don't use them to make salad. We use them to boiled soup with rib bone instead. It is well known of its rich source of antioxidant and rich in nutrients like Vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus and iron. Beet root may aid the natural process of elimination and support detoxification processes. It has liver, spleen, gall bladder and kidney cleansing properties.
My son love this soup, he named it 'the red sweet corn soup' because it gives the purple red hues and the sweetness of sweet corn. He just love it, I was surprise when he have the first sip of this soup, he told me "Mum... it is delicious....^^" It is just a simple soup, of lots of rib bone and beet root slices slow cook for 2 hours.
