My gf gave me this recipe - it's delicious!! I translated from French... hope it makes sense!! ;) The recipe asked for 1 potato but she replaces it with 3 carrots!! You can serve it cold (which she prefers) or hot (which I prefer). She also suggests to serve it with a piece of goat cheese (mmmm!). I used Baked Beets to bake my beets - so easy that way!! :) I wouldn't add sugar next time - I guess it depends how sweet the beets are!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the vegetables in small pieces.
  2. Melt butter in large saucepan. Add onion, celery and carrots (or potato) and sauté a few minutes.
  3. Add sugar and vinegar. Mix and cook for about 1 minute.
  4. Add the diced beets.
  5. Add water or chicken bouillon until the liquid reaches over the vegetables (if you want a thicker soup, don't add too much liquid - if you want a lighter soup, add more!).
  6. Add salt and pepper.
  7. Bring to a boil and cook for about 15 minutes.
  8. Process the soup in a blender or food processor.
  9. Enjoy!

Delicious! I used potatoes rather than carrots, used part broth and part water, and halved the amount of sugar. The beets were baked as the author suggested. So easy. I also didn't puree it as I like my beets to be chunky.
