A creamy soup made from parsnips and beets that creates a gorgeous color that mimics a current beauty trend.
In the bottom of a microwave steamer basket add 1/4 cup coconut milk and 2 tablespoons butter. Place cut vegetables along with beet greens in the basket, put the lid on and steam for 5 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. If the vegetables don’t fit leaving plenty of room for the steam to surround them, steam in batches.
Once tender, discard the greens. Add parsnips and beets to a large stock pot along with all the other ingredients (including remaining coconut milk and butter, excluding the sour cream which is garnish) and bring to a very low simmer.
When contents of the pot are warmed through, blend using an immersion blender or transfer to an upright blender and process until smooth.
Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
If it’s too thick it can be thinned by adding additional stock or half-and-half.
Serve immediately with a dollop of sour cream if desired.
I have been trying to make beer cheese soup successfully for years and I think it was the addition of butternut squash that sealed the deal. It not only helps with the flavor, but also the consistency. The recipe also calls for one of my favorite beers; Great Lakes Brewery’s Edmond Fitzgerald Porter. Add to that two types of cheddar and Gouda cheese and you’ve got a winner!
When the nip in the air becomes a definite chill then it’s time. It’s time for soup. There is no more comforting or sustaining a soup than Baked Potato Soup with Sausage and Roasted Peppers. When there is a fire crackling in the fireplace and this soup is on the table, all is well in our world regardless of what is going on outside.
