Chilled Beet Soup with Avocado

Beet Soup

Sweet beets, a feast for the eyes, are also body beautiful since they are high in folate – a heart and cancer protective compound.  If you prefer the taste of cooked beets, shop for pre-steamed beets in your local grocer or roast them if you like a richer roasted flavor.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 ½ pound raw beets, peeled, grated

1 quart home made chicken broth (or get it here if you don’t have time)

¼ cup chopped onion

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 pound cooked shrimp or chicken

2 avocados, diced

1/2 cup thinly sliced radish (optional)

¼ cup chopped herbs

 

Directions:

Place the beets, broth, onion, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a blender and process until smooth. Divide into four bowls and top each with a 4 to 5 shrimp or sliced chicken, 1/2 avocado, radish, and herbs.
