Beet, Bean, and Broccoli Rabe Soup


Also known as Triple B soup! Doing soup Mondays this winter has been great. I really enjoyed coming up with new soup ideas week after week. Since the beginning of 2013, I have been eating pretty healthy, and the weekly soups have been a fun chance to try mixing new veggies in different ways. This is going to be the last soup Monday of the season, but you can be sure it will be back when the weather turns chilly come November.

Roasted for about an hour.

Let it simmer for like a half hour before blending.

Silky smooth.

Toss in the broccoli rabe and beans and give it a few minutes to get everything tender.

So tasty, and much prettier than my last soup!

And as healthy as you can get!

4 or 5 beets
1 onion
5 cloves garlic
1 quart veggie stock
broccoli rabe
a can of small white beans

Chop up the beets and onion, and peel the garlic. Toss in a little oil and salt and roast at 400 until the beets are tender. About 45 minutes to an hour. Heat up the stock, toss in the veggies, simmer about 30 minutes, and puree until smooth. Add a little water if needed to thin it out if it's too thick. Chop up the broccoli and strain the beans. Add them to the soup and simmer for 10 minutes until the greens are tender. Serve.


Made this tonight. Really good!

Just made this tonight - wowza! So "simple" but so flavourful and good. Easier than pie, but so so good. We polished off the pot between the two of us.
