This simple and quick beet soup is just what you need in your repertoire of recipes! First of all, it is beautiful. Second, it is soooo easy to put together. And as a bonus, it can be served warm for a cozy winter meal, or cold as a refreshing summer dish. It’s seriously awesome!
Look it up!! Beets are super good for you, including their greens which are rich in nutrients and vitamins (so don’t get rid of them, everrrrr!). In this recipe, I use the beet greens as garnish, to add a little more texture to the dish, but they are also delicious in salads as well. They taste just like beets, sweet and earthy. If you haven’t tried yet, DO IT!
This beautiful earthy soup is super healthy, and simple to put together. Just boil the beets, peel, then, puree them. Season and done!
Serve it with beet greens sliced thin, sprinkle it with some goat cheese, a little drizzle of olive oil, a splash of lime and just enjoy this simple moment.
