Ingredients

  • 6 cups spring water
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 cups russet potatoes peeled & chopped
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon onione powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic poweder
  • 3 large bay leaves
  • 1 small beet raw, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large avocado cut into chunks
  • 1 bunch fresh dill for garnish
  • 1 radish for garnish
  • flaky sea salt for garnish
  • black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • For the soup base combine the water, vinegar, potatoes, cashews, garlic, sea salt, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, and bay leaves into a large pot and bring to a boil. Once this has come to a boil and the potatoes are tender, remove from heat. Let cool for about 20 minutes.
  • Once cooled, remove the bay leaves and add the mixture to a high-speed blender. Then add in one piece of raw beet. Blend until smooth. Continue this step, adding more beet, until desired color is reached.
  • At this point, you are ready to serve. Or return it to the stovetop until needed. Making this the perfect make ahead of time soup. Cover and simmer on low heat.
  • Garnish with 2 to 3 slices of watermelon radish, ripe avocado chunks, a few sprigs of chopped dill, a sprinkling of Maldon salt, and freshly cracked black pepper.

Notes

  • When possible, buy organic produce.
  • Don’t over blend the soup! This avoids ending up with a very gluey texture.
  • Add beet pieces into the blender one at a time to taste and until you get your desired pink hue.
  • Soup will keep in the fridge up to 5 days.
  • Soup garnishes are versatile: play with garnishing with any produce and herbs you'd like are no garnishes at all.
