  1. Warm olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onions and garlic; cook until soft but not browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in beets, and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Stir in stock, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cover, and simmer until the beets are tender, about 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly.
  3. In batches, add soup to a food processor, and pulse until liquefied. Return soup to saucepan, and gently heat through. Ladle into bowls, and garnish with a swirl of cream.

Delicious! One of the best soup recipes I've ever made. I made the recipe with chicken broth instead of beef stock, and it made the soup a bit lighter.

We had some beets in our produce co-op that we didn't know what to do with. This recipe was great! We didn't have enough beets so we added some potatoes too. Easy and yummy!

I made this in my VitaMix in about 7 minutes. I micro'd the stock and then blended on high with the raw beets. I sauteed the rest and added to the mixture. It was yummy!! Even my 7 year old ve...

I just discovered a new love for beets! I sliced the beets thin, which allowed the cooking time to stay closer to the approximated 20-25 minutes.

Great option for beets in a healthy dish. But make sure your beets are fully cooked otherwise you will get a grainy/lumpy cream.

In response to the review written by gina w. on Jul. 18, 2006. I've made this soup a couple times now and every time its turned out perfectly smooth. I know from experience why her soup came...

This was easy but not exactly quick - the beets took longer than I'd expected. Oh and I don't have a blender so I couldn't puree the soup, but it was still pretty good.
