Beetroot and Veg Soup
Beetroots taste great and they taste just as great in a soup. It is smooth in taste as well as sweet. The beet greens are a great addition to the soup. There are other healthy fruit and vegetables too. Cherry Tomatoes (that’s why I said fruit). There’s also peppers, mushrooms and spinach. This is another soup to have if you are feeling under the weather or low in vitamins. Again, I felt like a different person. I was not pressing the snooze button and it is winter.
