Golden Beet Soup

Golden Beet Soup, Butter Chicken 013This was the first time I made this soup.  It was given to me by my friend V.  We eat so much soup during the winter that I have a tendency to make the same ones over and over.  Its nice to have new soup recipes so you don’t get into a rut.  When you eat the same things all the time you get tired of eating them.

Soup is so healthy for you.  Packed full of nutrition.  It’s one of the best ways to get anyone to eat their veggies and we all know how good vegetables are for us.

This is beet soup.  Beets have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. But also lower your blood pressure, have anti-cancer properties, are rich in fiber and have detoxification support.  Why would you not want to eat them.

Golden Beet Soup, Butter Chicken 008Add 2 boxes of chicken broth into a large pot, along with any chicken bones or even bones with marrow.  The bones are totally optional.
