Chilled Beet Soup

Rated as 4.11 out of 5 Stars

"I have modified this soup from a recipe I got from a blender book. Canned beets are great for this recipe. You can save the juice from the canned beats, freeze it and add it in place of the chilled water or ice. Try serving with a dollop of sour cream."

I am not a great beet lover. However, this was fantastic. It took longer to wash and dry the blender than it did to make the soup. How do you spell "scrumptious"?

Wow! I made this soup on the hottest saturday here in california. I used 1/2 a Maui Sweet onion and ate it all the soup myself. Yum!

This is a gorgeous soup. It really needs sweet (maui) onions. We used red onions and it was way too oniony.

I love cold soups, but usually you have to cook something then chill it. This is so easy. I thought it had the perfect tang from the lemon and sour cream ( I used reduced fat ) and we didn't e...

I added extra lemon juice (one whole lemon), onion, salt, lots of pepper and an entire 8 oz container of sour cream (plus extra for garnish), then added ice water until it was the right consiste...

Good beet soup. Unless you really love onion, you might find it's best to cut down on it a bit. A couple of Tablespoons is enough to give it good flavor for our tastes. I'm surprised at the revi...
