Happy National Soup It Forward Day!

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.

You can find this and all my cookbooks in paperback and ebook formats on my GoodLiving123.com website and anywhere you shop for books.
