Beet and Cauliflower Soup

From time to time I get beets from my local organic club. Trying to figure out what to do with them besides roasting them has been challenging for me. Here I found a recipe online and I gave it a shot. I love soups so it was a nice change in our menu.

Ingredients
3 tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups chopped onion (from 1 medium)-** I did not have onion so I omitted this step.
6 cups chopped cauliflower (from 1 small head)
3 cups chopped peeled red beets (3 medium)
Coarse salt
6 cups vegetable broth
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill-** I used 2 tsp of dry dill.

Method

Heat water in a medium pot over medium-high heat, and add onion; saute until just translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in cauliflower, beets, and 1 teaspoon salt. Add broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until beets and cauliflower are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in dill. Let soup cool 10 minutes, then puree in batches until smooth, adding a little water if necessary to thin.

Return soup to pot, and bring to a simmer. Season with salt, and garnish with dill sprigs before serving. Here I put a teaspoon of Greek yogurt to compliment.

Carrots and beets

20120803-104337.jpgI love roasted veggies!!! I received these rainbow carrots and beets in my organic share and they looked so pretty I did not want to juice them. I roasted them with some olive oil, thyme and rosemary at 350 degrees for about 20 or until tender. Oh so good!!
