Janine’s Pink Soup

picture516This recipe is super easy, incredibly delicious, completely vegan, and FUN!  The soup itself is made from a delightful combination of only four ingredients.  The secret to elevating this simple soup lies in the little toasted croutons, which pack a surprising punch of curry.  Enjoy!

picture510Ingredients (makes about 6 cups)

4 red beets

2 white potatoes

2 cups vegetable broth

1 can of light coconut milk

picture512For the croutons:

1 slice of whole wheat bread

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon hot curry powder

Directions

picture511Step 1)  Peel the beets and potatoes with a potato peeler and cut into small chunks.  The easiest way to peel beets is to leave their stems and leaves attached.  Use the stems as a “handle” when peeling the beets.  Remove stems after beets are peeled.

Step 2) Simmer beets and potatoes in picture515vegetable broth, covered, for 10 – 15 minutes until vegetables are soft.  Puree with an immersion blender.

Step 3) Cut bread into crouton-size pieces (any shape).  Toast in a sauté pan greased with olive oil for 2 – 3 minutes over medium heat, until croutons are golden brown.

Step 5) Stir coconut milk into soup pot, and ladle soup into wide bowls.

Step 6) Float a few croutons on top of each bowl of soup.

Voila!  So easy!
