    evelyn/athens's Note:

    This is a wickedly-good concoction � a soup that�s perfect for summer! The colour is so beautiful � a deep, rich vermillion - and with a drizzle or dollop of dill-infused crème fraiche, it�s nearly too pretty to eat. Fortunately, the taste lives up to the stunning visual!

    Creme Fraiche Drizzle

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To make soup: Put all the soup ingredients in a blender. Process for 45-seconds to 1 minute, or until you have a completely smooth puree. Taste and adjust seasoning. Empty into a food-safe container and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to marry flavours. (Can be made up to 2 days ahead).
    2. 2
      To make Crème Fraiche Drizzle: Combine crème fraiche with finely-minced fresh dill. Refrigerate until ready to use. (Can be made up to 2 days ahead).
    3. 3
      To serve: Serve soup in pretty white bowls, if you have them, as the colour is so amazing. Drizzle with the crème fraiche and top each with a fresh sprig of dill.

      We enjoyed this lovely soup adapting the ingredients to what we had at home:
      Plain yogurt and some ice cubes instead of buttermilk and a mix of dried dill and fresh chives instead of fresh dill. We used red balsamico vinegar.
      This was a delicious and beautiful lunch served with still warm toasted bread!

      I made this for a slow cooker challenge. Beets cooked in a slow cooker are fabulous! Wash and cut leaves off about 1/2 inch from the beet. Leave the root. Put on large square of foil, drizzle with olive oil, wrap up and seal the foil. Cook in crockpot on high about 3 hours. Let cool a little and the skin comes right off, leaving you with a delicious roasted beet!. As for the soup - it was great, although I could not get anyone else to try it. More for me. Made for CQ 14.

      Fabulous soup and so easy to make. I bought red bell pepper (capsicum) on special and roasted it to use as the pimento, which worked very well. Didn't have crème fraiche, so subbed with a thick and tangy Greek yogurt. A big thumbs up from everyone in the family.
