Hi folks! I have a simple soul warming soup for you today. This Roasted Golden Beet & Carrot Soup with Quinoa is super easy to prepare & very nourishing.

This soup is warming in the chilly months & it’s exactly what the Easter bunny craves (carrots), therefore great for warmer months too!

There is something about roasted veggies that brings out their fullest flavor.

They were so fun to photograph before they got blasted with heat…

I LOVE BEETS! Like I love them, so so much. They’re very underused and under-rated and golden beets are like the bee’s knees! Beautiful soup & pinned!

Thanks Averie! They certainly are underrated ~ I’m so glad when I can add them to recipes like this :)

Both the golden beets and carrots were in my CSA box this week! They’re already in my belly, but I will definitely be making this soup soon! I, too, love roasted vegetable soup.
