Red Beet Soup


After a long time, we bought red beet. I prepared the usual side dish.

He said, “Wah!!! its nice. Beet is good for health”. I was beaming with pride as I always do when he likes and appreciates the food. Then he continued, “Why dont you prepare beet soup, it tastes too good”.

I was surprised, I never heard of beat soup, so i said “I have never heard of beet soup, I can’t even imagine how it would taste”.
“Just give it a try, you will like it”.

After 2-3 days, at lunch time,
“I have prepared a new dish today, but I donno how it will taste”.

He, “Its okay. Let me see what is it”
“Dont get scared, it does not look edible”
Then I served the soup,
He, “Oh my god!!! what is it??”
“You told me to prepare beet soup, I had never heard of it. Now eat it!!”
He silently ate it, then
“Its too good, Wah!!!”
I felt so happy to be successful in my adventure. So thought of sharing that recipe here.
The picture I have taken hasn’t come well. But I do not want to wait until I prepare it the next time. So bear with me.
