It's officially soup season, at least here on the East Coast. The chilly weather and shorter days mean easy, comforting and cozy recipes for dinner. If you're craving a creamy soup but don't want all of calories and fat that come with it, try this luscious beet and garlic soup! Made with just a bit of Greek yogurt, you get the creamy texture without the fat!

The amazing flavor of this soup comes from the roasted beets, garlic and onions. For added creaminess, you can add some heavy cream while you puree it. We love it with just a bit of Greek yogurt and some crispy French bread! After one spoonful, this soup will instantly become a favorite of yours, we guarantee it! Plus, the speckled look you get when you mix pickled beets with Greek yogurt make it not only tasty, but beautiful to look at!
