Red Velvet Beet Soup

You may have seen me post about my favorite Butternut Squash and Pear Soup. SO many people love this soup… it might be my most frequently requested recipe.

If you love Cauliflower, try this savory Cauliflower Celeriac SoupLike a little heat? Try this Curry Sweet Potato Soup.

  • 3 medium-sized potatoes (I used creamer potatoes, but any white potato will work)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1 radish
  • Microgreens
  • Plant-based yogurt or sour cream


  • Heat oil in a pot over medium heat.
  • Add onion and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring every few minutes,until it turns translucent. Then add garlic. 
  • Add all the rest of the chopped vegetables, the apple, and spices.
  • Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Add soup to blender with tomato paste and blend until smooth. You may have to do this in two batches due to the volume of the soup.
