1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Amazing Accidental Color-Changing Soup on: July 20, 2011 08:06:46 AM

This was a beet soup recipe we heavily altered from a low-fat cookbook.  They wanted all the steps done in the microwave, which wouldnt have been nearly as fun.  It thankfully used up a bowl of leftover cooked beets and turned out pretty tasty.

The funny part was that this soup was purple (you know what color beets are this was vivid beet purple) until we added the (not in recipe) can of black beans and left it to simmer. An hour later we came back to find the soup had turned a beautiful raspberry color (results not guaranteed).  It was very mysterious, but it was either the simmering, the potatoes or the black beans that did it.  Your guess is as good as mine.

Leftover Beet Soup
1 large onion, chopped
2-3 potatoes, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups water
1 tsp ground cumin
2 cups cooked beets, diced
1 bay leaf
1 tsp lemon juice
A pinch of thyme
2 cups stock (vegetable) - subbed vegetable builion substitute and two cups water
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

Heat onion, potato, olive oil and water until water boils, then lower to a simmer.  Wait until potatoes are cooked, then add the rest of the ingredients minus the black beans.  Cook ten minutes then add beans.  Serve whenever everything seems cooked (eh, soups I just play by ear).  Remove the bay leaf.  We waited 1 1/2 hours with it on low because dinner was ready too early, but it was done long before then.
