Warm Beet Soup
My daughter lives in New York's Manhattan. She tells me the weather has changed and it is beginning to feel like winter already! On days like these it's nice to look forward to a warm meal to take the chill out of the body. Beet soup is nutritious and warms the body. Here's a nice recipe for you to try.
2 tablespoons canola or grapeseed oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and black pepper
2½ pounds beets, peeled and chopped
½ pound starchy potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped
6 cups vegetable, chicken, or beef stock
Juice of 1 lemon
Sour cream for garnish (optional)
Chopped fresh dill for garnish (optional)
1. Put the oil in a large pot over medium heat. When it’s hot, add the onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the beets, potatoes, and carrot and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes, then add the stock.
