Beet Red Soup
Very different from most of the soups you might be use to. It is a great idea around Halloween because of the vibrant red color that boast a very close resemblance to blood. Extremely simple and easy to prepare, this would be a great soup for any Halloween party or cold October night.
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 6 medium beets, scrubbed, peeled and chopped

In a large pan heat the fat and add the onion and garlic for approximately 5 minutes, or until soft. Add chopped beets and cook for another minute.
Stir in the chicken or beef stock and season to taste with fresh ground pepper. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for approximately 25 minutes, or until the beet cubes are tender.
