Sweet & Creamy Root Vegetable Soup (Paleo!)

Hello!

Ever since I got back from Europe, I have been wanting to re-create a recipe for a soup that I had while in Chamonix, France: Beet Soup. It sounds gross, but it wasn’t ALL beets – it was potatoes, and shallots, and red wine vinegar… and it was sweet and salty and just amazing. So, I decided to make the recipe tonight – anddddd it didn’t exactly turn out the way that I wanted it to… BUT. It was still amazing! My beet soup recipe ended up turning more into a root veggie soup – with only a hint of beets. Also, the color should have been straight up the color of beets, but it turned out orange. I will definitely be tweaking this and trying again another time (less potatoes, more beets). So for the time being – enjoy my not-as-planned soup below for a perfect fall meal!

Sweet & Creamy Root Vegetable Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 Potato, chopped into cubes
  • 1 Sweet Potato (chopped into cubes)
  • 2 carrot stalks (chopped)
  • 4 cooked beets (I cheated and bought pre-cooked ones from Trader Joes)
  • 1 shallot
  • butter (or ghee)
  • 1 can coconut milk (full or light)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 baby leaf
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 cups broth (I used vegetable, you could use chicken)
  • garlic powder to taste
  • sugar to taste (optional – I used coconut sugar, you could also use dates)

Directions:

Cook shallots & garlic in butter until they start to brown (I cooked in a large cast-iron skillet). Add in broth, potatoes & carrots. Place a lid on top of skillet & let cook until vegetables/potatoes are soft. Remove the bay leaf. Transfer entire mixture into a blender/processor, adding the rest of the ingredients. *I recommend adding the spices at the very end, a little at the time, to find the perfect blend

Beets Shallots

Mix for a few seconds at a time – or fully mix – depending on how you want your soup, creamy or with a few veggie chunks.

Paleo Soup

Serve with a side (I was roasting chopped brussel sprouts and carrots while making this, so just topped my soup with them!) or some bread. Enjoy!

Paleo Pumpkin Egg Bake

Ever have leftovers you just don’t know what to do with? Well, I had no idea what to make with my leftover pumpkin purée, and I needed something for breakfast soooo I kind of just kept throwing everything in a bowl. It’s whole30 approved, although some might not agree that “bars” are compliant to the program. This is definitely not something I would make otherwise, and I needed something that would fill me up while on the run. So the decision is all you on whether or not to make a recipe like this! It’s all about convenience and having something made ahead of time for when you are too busy to prepare food.

Paleo Pumpkin Egg Bars

  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 8 eggs
  • 3-4 small, very ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup almond butter (preferably chunky)
  • 2 Tbsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ghee
  • optional: 6 puréed dates or 1/4 cup honey (I omitted since it’s breakfast, and whole 30)
  • 1/4 cup walnut pieces (optional)

Heat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. Mash bananas as much as you can with a fork (I like to have some banana chunks); add the rest of the ingredients minus the ghee and mix well in a bowl. Grease a 13×9 pan with ghee & pour the mixture in. Bake for 25-30 minutes until cooked all the way through. Let cool and put in bags for an easy on the go breakfast!
