Roasted Golden Beet Soup

Even though it’s 90 degrees outside I’ve been wanting to make soup with the fresh veggies we keep getting… so here’s my latest creation.  I did find the combination of beets and sweet potatoes online and I happened to have a bunch of Golden Beets in the fridge (also from the market), so I bought a Jewel Sweet Potato and Garnett Sweet Potato from the store.
