Beet Sweet Potato Soup from

Haven't gotten your oranges and reds in for the day? Here's a great soup with beets and sweet potatoes in it. I added a few things to the original recipe (it seemed a bit bland at first) found here and it turned out great.

1 can veggie broth

4 carrots, grated

4 beets, grated
Some beet greens, diced

1 onion, diced

2 cups carrot juice

1 cup celery juice

1 can tomato paste

2/3 sweet potatoes, diced

Garlic salt (or powder if you don't do salt) or minced garlic (I added it as an after thought so i just used garlic salt)

Whole wheat tortellini pasta, opt., cooked (I also added it as an after thought for my kids so it's not in the picture)

Add everything except the pasta to a saucepan and simmer until the sweet potatoes are cooked. Blend half of the soup in the blender and add back to the pan (makes the soup thicker.) Add pasta if wanted.
