Sexy Comfort Food….Is that even possible? Well, I think that this soup qualifies. The richness of this purplely red color, the smooth texture on the tongue, a mingling of fresh basil and the taste of earthy goodness makes this one of my favorite soups.
I look forward to beets every fall. Though I enjoy them frequently throughout the year, they are truly a vegetable to enjoy when the leaves start to change color. I love to roast them for an hour with olive oil and salt and pepper. I leave the skins on because it enhances that lovely earthy taste. This soup is so easy in fact…I feel silly posting it because it’s not really a recipe at all. It’s pureed beet goodness in a bowl. But I get so many OOOh and Aaahhs when i make it, that I am posting it as a a request. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you’re not feeling the “sexy”… try eating it in your gotch…it might help.
