This perfect Christmas soup add a festive flair to your meal and is easy & cheap to make and can even be made a day or two ahead of time and just reheated for your dinner. The red soup is roasted beet & the green soup is broccoli.

For some fun you could do alternating bowls for each guest one with a red base and green wreath the next the opposite: green soup with a red wreath.

This dish can be easily made vegetarian by switching the chicken stock for vegetable stock.

Melt the butter in a stockpot or large soup pot over medium heat.
Add onions and lower heat to medium-low.
Sprinkle a pinch of salt over the onions and sweat, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened.
Lower the heat if necessary to avoid browning the onions. This should take about 5 minutes.

Add the broccoli, chicken stock and potato to the soup pot and raise the heat to medium-high.
Bring the soup to a simmer. Partially cover the pot and simmer for 25 minutes, or until all the vegetables are soft.

Remove the pot from the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Puree the soup, in batches, use an immersion (stick) blender in the pot to your desired consistency.
Add the salt and pepper to taste.
