Clearly we are on a soup kick at the Hungry Southern Belle house.  The weather is perfect for this comforting treats and the lighter fare suits our healthy eating goals as well.   I made this special little find last night and it is definitely a keeper!  It certainly made more than the suggested 4 servings…in fact, I think a certain someone (*Riche wink wink*) went back for two or three helpings.  With the amazing health properties of both the fresh beets and fresh ginger, I wasn’t going to complain about that!  I paired the soup with a lovely fresh “power greens” salad and garnished the soup with a little bit of creamy goat cheese.  All in all a huge winner!  I look forward to making it closer to Christmas and add a lovely pop of green with some Italian parsley perhaps.  Either way, I hope that y’all enjoy it as much as we did!!!
