Winter Beet and Apple Soup
Beets are a super nutritious food! They contain immune boosting vitamin C, potassium for nerve and muscle function, and plenty of fiber among other things. So I like to include them in my meals. The recipe I am sharing with you today features them as the main ingredient paired with apple. It is a pureed soup that is delicious and reminds me of borscht because of its flavor but this soup is silky smooth. It is a good way to get in a lot of delicious vegetables and fruit in one sitting. This is good served with a light salad including protein on the side for dinner if you are looking for something healthy to enjoy.
