Here’s another one for the SOUP SERIES!
Fresh beets are delicious. If you have never tried one, please do so on my behalf. They are crunchy and sweet and slightly acidic.
I was staring at the greens and then at the beets…then at the greens, then down again to the beets…and I started to think about borscht (which is made from the beets themselves). So, I thought why not a beet green soup? I’m sure that I am not the first person to have come to this conclusion over the years, but still I was pretty pleased with myself…and the tasty results:
4 cups broth (veggie or chicken)
greens from a bunch of beets- roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic – finely diced
1/2 TBS sea salt
Throw everything into the pot, bring to a boil then simmer for about 25-30 mins or until the greens look tender. Use an emersion blender to liquefy the contents then simmer for an additional 5-8 min. Top with a grated cheese of your choice!
