Lovely And Purple: Beet Soup

Pretty Beet Soup

I’d never had beets until my sister came to visit earlier in the year. She was making us Turkey Asian Meatballs with a side of steamed beets. It sounds like a slightly wonky meal but it was actually quite delicious.

Raw Beets

The beets are nice and earthy tasting, my sister said they reminded her of fresh corn. I could kind of see her point but at the same time its completely different. Its earthy but not sweet like corn.

The only time I had ever had beets before my sister came to visit was pickled beets on salad, I always found eating them amusing since it turned my salad purple.

Spicy Beef Stew

Now I’m really not sure what to call this, its not quite a thick chili, but its a little thicker than a soup and rather than just call it a sili I can’t think of anything that’s not so…silly. Most of the time I just refer to it as a stew then try to explain it.

Beef Stew

Its one of those dishes that is very comforting and can be as spicy as you want it to be depending on how much hot stuff you put in it.

Roasted Tomato Soup

I got more tomatoes! This time they came from another coworker and he gave me quite the bag of them!

Gifted Tomatoes

There seems to be such a difference in people’s gardening styles. The first tomatoes I got from my friend were soft, fully ripened and ready to eat. This second batch I got from another coworker is more on the unripened side, a little more orange inside and not quite there yet. But I can understand the reasoning for them to ripen on the counter and last a little longer.

Tomato Basil Soup

Its tomato season! It seems everyone is having the same problem of tomatoes or other produce just running wild in their gardens. Which means I benefit by having everyone give me bags and containers of tomatoes!

Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato season now makes me so excited, ever since my coworker brought me home grown tomatoes for the first time.

Last year I decided I was going to make something I had never actually tried, let alone try to make. Tomato soup. That’s right I had never eaten tomato soup and grilled cheese as a kid. Not sure why, I had a weird culinary upbringing.

I love her. And her tomato growing dad.

Cherry Tomatoes

So when she brought me my first round of yummy, lovely tomatoes I proceeded to give myself heartburn before I had to stop eating the cherry tomatoes and I knew I just HAD to make more tomato soup this year.
