Roasted Beet and Sweet Potato Soup

 

Here at Figberry we're a bit obsessed with beets. Beets are a nutritional powerhouse and possess antioxidants that help ward off inflammation, cancer, and heart disease. But beets aren't just a healthy superfod. They're also beautiful, which is important since eating a clean diet is so much easier (for both you and your kids) when food is visually pleasing, 

This roasted beetroot and sweet potato soup is vibrantly colored, packed with flavor, and is sure to please your family. The combination of the root vegetables and coconut milk make this soup hearty yet luxurious, and the flavors lend themselves to a wide variety of pairings. For an Indian flair, top your soup with coconut yogurt, cilantro, chili peppers, and fennel seeds. For an Asian twist, add cooked shiitake mushrooms, sesame seeds, scallions, and sesame oil. And for a Mediterranean vibe, swirl in a few dollops of tahini, sesame seeds, parsley, and za’atar oil. 

Try serving this soup as a first course at a dinner party, or serve it alongside a leafy green salad and pita bread for a light dinner with your family.
