When I looked into my fridge today morning and spotted four sad beetroots, lying all forgotten in the vegetable compartment, lunch was set. The color of these beets stuns me very time so whats better as to make a beautiful soup with them to enjoy that color even more. It turned out deliciously creamy and light and was a feast for the eyes. Colours of nature are just the most beautiful! I served this soup with some homemade corn bread.
Have a happy day you all!!
