This soup started out as a Sauce for Rice Bowls and Steamed Veggies ...but somehow became so much more when a bunch of Beautiful BEETS and Onion jumped into the Blender ..added a few more tweeks and VOILA
Beautiful Beet Soup
1 Large Onion, chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
2 Cups Chopped Beet
1/2 Cups Tahini
2 TBSP Miso
5 TBSP Lemon Juice, fresh squeezed ...nothing else is acceptable here ..its just not the same
2 TBSP Tamari or Braggs liquid aminos
1 TBSP Ginger
3 Cups Water
In a Large skillet sauté Onion and garlic in Coconut oil, when onion is translucent add Beets about 1/4 cup water just a bit to take a bit of the raw out of the Beets
Blender or Food Processor: Put all your ingredients in including you sautéed Beet onion mix (this will smell fabulous) Blend about 2-4 mins in Vitamix
Low Fat Corn Bread TOO!
OH yeah ...since I included corn bread in the picture I might as well include the recipe in case you want to make it too. Corn bread is super fast and easy...and I think compliments any soup or salad into a meal...kids LOVE corn bread
For some reason Corn bread makes me remember Taisa Hart ...I once tasted her corn bread at Aroma cafe when she absolutely insisted that I eat some... If anyone else remembers Taisa you will understand how much she tolerated someone saying no to her...even no thank you...just give in and eat the Corn bread....and I'm glad I did cause I am certain I have never tasted a better corn bread since...Mandolyn do you have her recipe?
So here is my recipe:
1 Cup Rice Flour or Spelt Flour (you can also use all purpose Flour)
1 Cup Yellow Corn Meal
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 Large Egg, lightly beaten
1 Cup 0 Fat Greek Yogurt
1 Cup Water
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil, melted
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees prep 9x5-inch loaf pan
Whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking Powder, and salt in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl whisk together Egg, Greek Yogurt, Water, and melted coconut oil
Stir Wet into Dry
Mix until just barley combined
Spread batter into your prepped loaf pan and bake for 22-25 mins
A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean
Serve in slices
TIP...1/2 cup tahini + 1/4 Cup Pure Maple Syrup ....spread this on your corn bread ...
Oh My GOSH !!!
enjoy your soup and bread my lovelies
