Beets may take a while to roast, but their powerful healthy status makes it worth the wait. (For a tasty side dish, saute the green tops -- they have double the potassium, folic acid, and iron as the sweet roots.) Garlic and leeks, both health-boosting alliums, add delicious flavor and dimension to any soup.

Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Garlic and Beet Soup

3 beets (2" dia, sphere) Beets
2 tbsp Olive Oil
6 clove Garlic
1 medium raw Leeks
0.25 tablespoon Thyme
1 tsp, crumbled Bay Leaf
0.13 cup Lemon Juice

Recipe Directions for Roasted Garlic and Beet Soup

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle beets with olive oil and roast in parchment-lined foil until tender, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, drizzle garlic cloves with oil and roast in separate foil packet, about 30 minutes. Unwrap beets, let cool, peel, and quarter. Squeeze garlic from skin. Set aside.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Add leek and cook, stirring, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add beets and garlic, thyme, bay leaf, and 3 cups water. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, 5 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Let cool slightly, then puree in a blender until smooth. Stir in lemon juice and adjust seasoning to taste.
