It's been cold here lately so I have been making tons of soup!!! :) I love hot soup on a cold or rainy day. Cooking them warms up my kitchen, warms up my body, and it's just plain good for my soul.
...and I know I'm raving a bit, so - no - I didn't get paid for this, I don't actually KNOW Toni, I just love her cooking style...
2 cloves of garlic, diced
3 or 4 red beets, peeled and diced
2 medium potatoes, washed and diced
1 apple, diced
3 cups of vegetable broth
dried dill (for garnish)
Saute onions, carrots, and celery in olive oil over medium heat until onion is translucent and carrots are soft, approx. 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, cook for 30 seconds longer. Add vegetable broth, beets, potatoes, and apple. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
