it was so nice this weekend, we have had 70's and sun for the past week now. i really thought that i was going to avoid the kitchen this weekend and have to explain why i didn't cook this weekend. but then 5 o'clock rolled around and we were all starved. and so this soup was born.
we had some beets in the fridge and i have been thinking of this yummy soup that we had at 5 and 10 recently. i tried to make some myself and i have to say...it tastes pretty good!
4 large roasted beets, peeled
1 yellow onion
1 baking potato, peeled
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
-chop the onion and caramelize it in the olive oil until translucent
-add the chopped peeled potato, carrots, and enough water to cover them
-heat to a boil and simmer until carrots and potatoes are tender
-cube the roasted beets and add to soup.
-let the soup cool for a little bit
-blend soup in a blender or i used a handheld immersion blender that worked just fine
-add some salt and pepper to taste
-serve warm with some yogurt or creme fraiche
