Yes! This is a real thing. Every March 3rd National Soup It Forward Day encourages us to deliver love and kindness by the bowlful because a warm cup of kindness comes in many forms.
To that end, I gleefully serve up one of my published soup recipes from my Keep It Super Simple collections. I created this scrumptious bisque after being served one near The Hamptons on Long Island, New York in 2005. If you are a fan of beets, you will find this soup to be yummy, healthy, and Super Simple.
Café Martin Fresh Beet Bisque
3 c chopped fresh beets, peeled
2 c chopped sweet onions
1 c chopped baby carrots
2 c chopped, peeled, cored apples (Granny Smith, Cortland, or combo)
2 c chicken broth
2 c beef broth
¼ tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp salt (I love the pink Himalayan salt.)
Freshly ground black pepper, to suit your taste
Put all vegetables, apples, & broth in large soup pot. Simmer, covered, on med-low heat for about 30 min or until vegetables are tender. In batches of 2 c each, process on puree setting in a blender, or use an immersion blender directly in your pan. Add seasonings and serve in heated bowls. Makes 8 cups (2 qts) of soup.
KISS Tip: Add a luscious creaminess by serving each bowl topped with a pat of butter in the center.
