Red soup with herbs

Red soup with herbs

This recipe is all about beets, with a just little dill, tamari, and yogurt added. It’s different and best suited for summers, as it’s served at room temperature. Chilled or slightly warm options work too. The beet greens in this recipe add to the earthy taste. Tamari – a gluten free soy sauce, adds an earthy flavor of its own, balancing and modulating the beet taste, so don’t substitute that ingredient. In the end, using a super-thick yogurt will thicken up the soup. So all you beet-eaters, enjoy!
