Gluten-Free_Dairy-Free_Cannellini_Bean_Beetroot_Carrot_Soup

This soup came about because of a pile of root veggies sitting in my veggie box. When I have beetroot, I usually bake it and make a salad with avocado, nuts, seeds, that sort of thing. Or steam it and serve it as a veggie. But I wanted to do something different, and this was […]
