I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with beets! If someone else prepares them in a salad or soup, I usually love them. If I prepare them, I usually hate them!
My only experience using beets that I made and enjoyed was when I juiced them.
I found a great, flavorful, beet soup recipe in my Straight from the Earth cookbook. This is a vegan cookbook I got as a gift. I made a few important changes, like not using the canola oil, that makes it more real food friendly 🙂

It’s unseasonably cool here today, so I’m making soup for dinner. This soup is a warming, protein filled dish, that’s easy to make. I originally found this recipe at All Recipes.com and I changed some things to make it real food friendly.
I thought the original recipe had to much broth, so I reduced the amount. As always, try to use as many organic ingredients as possible!
This soup takes about an hour to start to finish. Even though there’s just two of us, I usually make the full recipe because I like it that much. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
