A delicious, beautifully colored, rich soup perfect for fall and winter! Serve with some multi-grain rolls or bread for a satisfying lunch or supper. I think it's best hot, but can be eaten cold as well. Garnish with sour cream and chopped chives.

  • Place beets on a cutting board. Remove skin and chop beets.

  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir potatoes, onion, red chile flakes, and curry until potatoes are slightly softened, about 15 minutes. Add the boiled beets, chicken stock, and brown sugar. Increase heat to high; bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover; cook until vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Season with salt.

  • Fill blender halfway with soup. Cover and hold lid down with a potholder; pulse a few times before leaving on to puree. Pour into a pot. Repeat with remaining soup.

Cook's Notes:

You should end up with about 5 cups of chopped beets after boiling.

You can adjust the amount of chili flakes to make it hotter, which is how I like it. This version goes over well with the average heat-tolerant palate.
