Vegan Beet Soup Recipe
Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
There are some recipes that are just staples, 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 how well the flavor pairs with coconut milk (my fave) and the gorgeous hue that’s achieved.
Beet soup especially is a perfect example of a recipe that can easily go wrong. I’ve approached different variations of this recipe, but it pairs best 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, pairs perfectly with toast, has a hint of sweetness with the coconut milk and apples, and will compliment any meal or can even be enjoyed by itself!
I personally love to incorporate beets (and tomatoes) into my diet. I find that beets make my skin glow and I’ve evolved to even crave the flavor!
