Vibrant Beets Soup


There is something fascinating about beets.

They are vibrant. Sweet. And delicious.

I have been want to make beets soup for a while.

I finally did.

This recipe is loosely based on this recipe from Love Served Daily. I wanted beets to be the primary ingredient. And it was delicious!
