An Unexpectedly Tasty Soup
Sweet yet earthy, this brilliant fuchsia soup is a feast for the eyes. Even better: it's rich in healing ingredients such as dairy (in the form of buttermilk), which has probiotics that can help keep inflammation in check, and red berries (the compounds that give them their color also may reduce inflammation). In the slow cooker, the beets become tender enough to puree with an immersion blender; and they go impressively well with strawberries, with the berries offsetting the root veg's intense flavor.
