Chilled {or warm} Golden Beet Soup with Roasted Garlic Cashew Cream

It’s no secret that I love obsess over soup. I really, truly, can never get enough soup. Since golden beets are perfectly in season throughout spring, summer and fall – I thought I’d bring you a little soup treat that is equally delicious served both hot and cold.

The earthiness of this Golden Beet Soup pairs perfectly with a swirl of my Roasted Garlic Cashew Cream. Hot or cold, it’s all the same now, so dig in my friends + enjoy.

Golden Beet Soup

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 3 large golden beets, scrubbed clean with roots and leaves trimmed
  • 1 medium white or yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 3 cups of organic vegetable broth
  • 2 cloves from your roasted garlic bulb {see cashew cream below}
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Half and then quarter your beets and onion, drizzle with the coconut oil and coat evenly. Put the veggies on a baking sheet that’s lined with parchment paper. Along with the veggies throw in the whole bulb of garlic {see Roasted Garlic Cashew Cream recipe below}. Roast for about 35 – 40 minutes or until soft and tender, flipping half way.

When the veggies are done cooking, set them aside. Take the bulb of garlic {be careful, the insides are super hot} and pop out two the cloves for the soup, set the rest of the bulb aside for now.

Combine the beets, onions, vegetable broth, 2 garlic cloves, paprika, sea salt and pepper; puree until smooth in either your blender or food processor.

The soup is fantastic eaten both cold and hot. It’s especially good with a swirl of Roasted Garlic Cashew Cream, see recipe below.
