      This is the most beautiful, colorful and delicious veggie dish I have ever served. This is going to be my 1st course for Thanksgiving for a party of eight. This recipe showcases the veggies that are in season at the right time. Thank you so much for posting this lovely recipe!

      This was an absolutely beautiful soup but for some reason mine came out overpoweringly beety. I like beets but for me it was too much. It was definitely the prettiest soup I ever made though :)

      I made just the soup part of this recipe - well worth it. I made half the amount, as I had small beets, and eight of them were needed to make up a pound. I did not add any salt, as we are very low sodium, and did not miss it. The lemon juice does not show up in the instructions, and I did not use it. I did garnish with a spoonful of sour cream - plain yogurt or creme fraiche would also be lovely. I can just imagine how lovely this would look against the deep orange of acorn squash. The soup is very flavorful, we enjoyed it very much.
