Golden Beet Soup

Baby, it’s cold outside!

This soup should help 😉

If you’re anything like me, you love making soups for the winter “hibernation” period! During the harsh winter months, curling up in warm blankets and flannel pyjamas and consuming nothing but warm food and beverages is my protocol 😉 This soup fits the bill and helps me embrace winter.

Made with golden yellow beets, aromatic (and tear-inducing) onion, fragrant ginger, sour lemon and starchy potatoes, this bright yellow soup is as delicious as the combination of its ingredients is surprising.

So go on my hibernating bears, time to get warmed up! 🙂
