Beetroot And Tomato Soup Recipe

Beetroot and tomato soup recipe is a very comforting and easy dish to make on winter.  Since the weather is very cold and snowing outside in US, I thought I will share a recipe of soup today and found a beetroot in the refrigerator.

Beetroot and tomato, both are excellent sources of Vitamin C and provide substantial amounts of other nutrients as well, beets are packed with potassium and manganese, while tomatoes are full of vitamins A and K, also add even more potassium to the mix. The color of this soup is unbelievable.

You can have this soup with whole-wheat toasted bread and have it as a light lunch or dinner too.
