Creamy Coconut & Roasted Beet Soup with Pistachios & Greek Yogurt

July 23, 2015

Author Notes: Bright and colorful, this is the perfect soup for all seasons. Eat it warm or chilled. Thick and creamy, I even recommend spreading some on a thick, rusty bread for a unique sandwich. To make this soup, you’ll need either an immersion blender, food processor or regular blender. With The Grains
