Flu-Fighting Beet and Ginger Soup
Maple and Marigold
medium sized Beets
piece of Ginger
of freshly pressed Apple Cider
optional will amplify the flavour. If not available replace with low-sodium chicken broth and a teaspoon of brown sugar
of low-sodium vegetable or Chicken Broth
Peel beets and cut into chunks.
Peel onion and cut into chunks
Roughly chop ginger
Take a tbsp of oil in a pan on medium heat.
Add in the vegetables and stir them around to caramelize for 8-10 minutes
Pour in the liquid. Boil once and then simmer for 20-30 minutes, till the beets are soft.
Serve with a splash of cream.
For the Sautéd Beet Greens
Take 3 chopped garlic cloves in a tbsp oil along with a sprinkle of red chilli peppers. I go a little crazy with chilli peppers here since it is unlikely my kids will eat this.
Sauté for a few minutes till the garlic turns a little brown.
Add in the greens and sprinkle salt as needed
Sauté briefly and serve.
