You go, girl, or guy! You can do it! You can enjoy a soup full of root vegetables that is both delicious and good for you. This soup stars beets, sweet potato and parsnips, with a supporting role for acorn squash and mushrooms. Pomegranate seeds are used both in the soup and for the garnish, for a double kick of goodness.
Did you know pomegranates are used as symbols of birth and eternal life, fertility and marriage, abundance and prosperity in many cultures? This soup is a beautiful, deep, red color, perfect for the holidays! It's thick and boisterous, full of passion and good looks.
It can also be made in the slow cooker. For the best flavor, though, you still need to roast the vegetables first. —lifeofcolors
