tangy_beet_soupWe love lighter foods during summer, and we often gravitate toward veggies because they taste great and are great for you! One of our personal favorites is beets with their amazing health benefits and ability to be used in a variety of amazing ways. Take for example this Tangy Beet Soup recipe from our friends at the stately turn-of-the-century, Mission-style Oxford House Inn in Fryeburg, ME. Boasting breathtaking views of the White Mountains, this Maine B&B country inn features an amazing gourmet restaurant onsite that offers exceptional dining by candlelight. Led by owner/Culinary Institute of America graduate Chef Jonathan Spak, the menu is adjusted seasonally to highlight the best offerings of local farms in the region.
