Potato Beet soup

Potato Beet soup

Do you have a favorite soup that you  make when you have cold or feeling sick?

 My husband was under the weather last week.One of his favorite soup when he is not feeling well is potato soup. 

This time was no different.I tweaked the soup little bit .I added beets for a change and didn’t make it cheesy.Beets are very good for you.it also adds deep pretty purple color and earthiness to the dish. However truth be told,we are not in love with the beets yet, so the trick is to mash it fine and make it unrecognizable to pick it out.Since Our kids had the second serving of the soup, I would say it is a keeper.

You can top it with sour cream/Greek yogurt and cheese if you like. I left out these items.
