I've come across so many delicious recipes for beets lately I just had to buy some. Sadly, they sat neglected in the pantry for a few days because I couldn't decide which recipe to make first. That's the only trouble with having an extensive collection of recipes at your fingertips. I finally settled on a slightly modified version of Johanna's chunky beetroot soup with kidney beans. This is quite possibly one of the healthiest vegetable soups I have ever eaten. It's packed full of healthy root vegetables, filled out with some plump red kidney beans, and the seasoned broth is a perfect base for all of the chunky vegetables. Once you finish assembling the ingredients, it's a very easy and trouble-free soup to make. Johanna served hers for a summer meal, but it is equally satisfying for those of us enduring a brutally long and cold winter. If you haven't checked out Johanna's site, I highly recommend that you do. Readers are treated to thoughtful writing, mouthwatering photographs and a frequent selection of delicious vegetarian recipes. Even if you aren't a vegetarian, you are sure to enjoy Johanna's varied assortment of culinary offerings.
