Chicken vegetable soup
My friends who came for lunch were amused.

Multicolor carrots were included in one of our December CSA boxes of vegetables.
Besides orange carrots, there were also yellow and purple ones.

It didn't occur to me that the purple carrots
might bleed into the color of the soup.  
After all, adding orange carrots to chicken vegetable soup
doesn't tint the broth.  
Or the chicken.

Purple ones do.
Be warned.


  1. It looks delish. Those carrots are so beautiful, aren't they?

  2. Yowza! Reminds me of the time I used red wine to deglaze the pan after sauteing chicken, then put the chicken back in to coat it with pan sauce. A sort of burgundy-purple result. :)

    Your soup looks delicious, and almost like borscht.


Thank you!
