  5. 5. Turn the heat up until the vegetables and stock are boiling. Then turn the heat lower again and gently cook the beetroot soup for about 8 to 10 more minutes until the (sweet) potatoes are soft. Once all the ingredients are cooked, remove the bay leaves. Blend the beetroot soup until it is very smooth and silky.
