Hello & Happy Wednesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s talk beets! Even as a foodie today, once upon a time, I wasn’t a fan of beets. The neutral flavor, the texture, you name it, I wasn’t about it. However, today, I love the vibrancy they add to any dish along with their mild flavor and I just love them. If you’re stumped on how to use them, soup is a great option! I personally love soup season as it’s the best medium to pack on the veggies. You can throw in a lil of this and that and given the portion, you can’t even detect them. Great for parents struggling to get in the good stuff!

 

There are some recipes that are just staples, and beet soup is one of them! This was one of the first soup recipes I created back in 2014 and I was quickly enamored with beets due to the gorgeous color they provide and just how well the flavor pairs with coconut milk!  It breaks up the earthy flavor of the beets, adds a hint of sweet and even organically creates a wonderful pink hue that will brighten up any dinner table. 

 

 

 

 

 


 

What I love about this recipe is that it involves a handful of affordable and accessible ingredients, is effortless, can be made in bulk, perf for any season, pairs perfectly with toast, has a hint of sweetness with the coconut milk + apples, and will compliment any meal or can even be enjoyed by itself!

  1. Are you using fresh Ginger, if so should it be minced? Also the Thyme, is it dried, ground or fresh? The recipe looks and sounds delicious. Thank you!
