Tomato & Beet Soup

This is my mom’s beet tomato soup recipe that she would make for me when I went to school in Boston. I posted this on my IG stories and you all went wild to get the recipe. Also probs because I wrote beer instead of beets by accident LOL. Regardless this is soooo good and the color is BEAUTIFUL!!! I tried to make this own my own but it didn’t turn out as good as hers, because she didn’t give me half the ingredients over the phone. I had her make it when she came here and measured everything.

You can also make this in the Instant pot, add everything to the IP and pressure cook it for 10-15 minutes on high. It will be perfect for the holidays! You can serve it with croutons and a dash of cream. So yummy!! Hope you all like this! Don’t forget to tag me when you make this @zheelicious

Stay happy, stay hungry!
