Beets have amazing cleansing properties to the body; they help cleanse the liver and the blood. A Healthy Liver and clean blood are important factors in clear, healthy and glowing skin. That’s why this soup is called Glowing Skin & Detox soup. Although this recipe is a simple take on my Bauba’s Classic Ukrainian Borscht recipe it is also a secret beauty health recipe as well, and it’s tasty.
Many people I talk to seem to get intimidated by making soup. One of my secrets to keep it simple and healthy is to use an organic bouillon. I prefer Harvest Sun Organic Veggie Bouillon it adds a nice flavour to the soup and rounds off all the flavours nicely. It also is lower in sodium and uses natural ingredients.
4 Beet chopped in cubes
1 Onion cubed
1 Carrot finely sliced
2 cloves of diced garlic
1 Organic Vegetable Bouillon
1/2 cup of plain yogurt
4 tbsp of dill
4 tbsp parsley
Place the chopped beets in 4 cups of water in a soup pot on the stove and bring to a boil. Add the chopped carrots, onions, diced garlic, and one organic vegetable bouillon. Add 2 tbsp of dill and 2 tbsp of parsley to the soup and keep the rest for garnish. Bring the soup to simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes on medium then turn to low and simmer for another 5 minutes.
Dollop with Yogurt to get probiotic benefits and it also adds a nice flavor and texture to the soup.Garnish with fresh dill and parsley for extra colour and flavor. Have this soup over the next couple days as it gets better with flavour and is sure to make you feel like you have more energy! Enjoy!
