beet soup

6 roasted beets

1 onion, diced

butter/olive oil, about a tablespoon

2 star anise

1 bay leaf

3 c broth (any kind)

2 t cider vinegar (I use Braggs)

1/2t cardamom

So I had roasted beets in the refrigerator which I cut into quarters. In a soup pot I heat olive oil and butter (about 1T total) and cooked a chopped onion. I tossed in the anise and cardamom and cooked the onion until it was soft. Then I added broth, vinegar,  and a bay leaf and let it cook for about 10 minutes. Added the beets and cooked another 10 minutes. Removed the bay leaf and anise. Blended the soup until it was smooth
