Royal Vegetarian Soup

This soup is royal not just because of the rich purple color and delicate unobtrusive spice. It combines several so different but so ably complementary flavors … sweetness of the beets and sour plum tomatoes, sharpness and spice spices with juiciness vegetables, and easy tartness of dried tomatoes, olives and violet basil notes… Everyone will be pleased with it because it is rich and harmonious. I you like it.hope
