Beet soup - hot or cold - health home and happiness

We like this soup both warm and chilled for warmer weather. Rich beetroots and carrots puree in nourishing chicken broth and create a hearty soup suitable for any time of the year.  Serve with coconut flour bread, hazelnut bread, and sliced beef or chicken to round out the meal.

Chicken stock, especially with all the gelatinous parts of the chicken around the bone blended in, is too nourishing of a food to only eat during cold weather. With cold soups we can get the health benefits year around. Cold soup also makes a great lunch on the go when packed in a thermos (this is the one we use and like the best)
