what goes here?
i’ve got plenty on my mind, but never know what is appropriate to put here. is this where i just talk about my music? and say the expected things like: hey! buy my new CD! or at least restrict my posts to music-related adventures? well, even with a new album out, that’s just not where my life is at these days. here’s a recipe for the easy and awesome beetroot soup i made for guests last night and just had leftover for lunch:
1/2 lg yellow onion, chopped
1 T extra-virgin coconut oil
4 medium beets, peeled and chopped
salt and pepper
1 T honey
pinch of dried dill
yogurt or sour cream for garnish
in a large pot, sautee the onions in coconut oil over medium heat until very soft (20 minutes – keep the pot covered when not stirring so the onions don’t dry out and burn).
add beets and sautee until they release some of their water.
add cold water to cover beets by about an inch. add salt (to taste, or about 1/2 tsp) and freshly ground pepper. bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until beets are soft (about 30 minutes).
blend in 2 batches until very smooth. return to pot and stir in the honey and dill.
serve hot or well-chilled with a dollop of yogurt or sour cream. serves 4.
