Soup for sick people

The Evil Twin is sick, and I've got something going on myself. So yesterday I made soup.

It was invented soup.

First I oven-roasted a bag of carrots, a bag of parsnips, a few cloves of garlic, a butternut squash, and four whole beets until they were nice and soft.

Then I sauteed two onions and a leek in a large pot.

Once the onions were nice and limp, I added in about 6 cups of water, a generous pinch of the Maine sea salt I got yesterday, and all the roasted veg, cutting up the beets into chunks. I let that simmer for a while.

Then I pureed the whole thing with some olive oil and let me just say that not only is it delicious, it is the most gorgeous color too.

I might make some tofu croƻtons to go with it.

Hooray for soup!
