 Jensen’s Foods Vegan Recipe of the Week

Hooray for Hollywood! We tested Beverly Hilton Executive Chef Matthew Morgan’s Golden Beet Soup recipe from the recent all-vegan Golden Globe Awards ceremony. Much like a golden gazpacho with a hint of citrus, this recipe is chilled and garnished with a chiffonade of  fresh beet tops and pistachios.
