Author Notes

I have to admit I was surprised how much I liked this soup, I love beets and ginger, and beet and ginger juice but I didn’t imagine I would like it so much as a soup, but I loved it! It works really nicely with the black beans so I recommend including those and a sprinkle of fresh herbs and toasted seeds. Serve with greens or fresh bread. —Kali
