Wonderful! I oven roasted the beets and carrots for a little extra flavor. The flavor is really nice, and the color as mentioned is rich and beautiful.

Nice and cozy, delicious. I rough chopped everything so beets, carrot and onion chunks were about the same size. Added carrots and beets to heat at same time (wasn't obvious from directions). Next time I'm going to try a smaller chop, cut the time and skip the puree for some texture. A great, healthy soup!

My husband came home with a bunch of fresh beets and carrots and I didn't know what to do with them. I NEVER would have thought I would like beets, but this was GREAT! I was a little confused on the directions...I guess you saute beets with carrots and onions. Also, I thought it was lacking in a little flavor so I added more garlic and ginger (I used water, so it may be better with broth instead). I pureed most of it, but left some chunks in for more texture.

I had a bunch of beets and carrots left over from my produce box and found this recipe. Very simple and tasty. I add some kale to the hot blended soup at the end. It add some texture and great flavor.

Yummy and healthy. I had roasted, removed the skin and frozen some beets in the fall, so this was a nice way to use some of them. I loved the combination of orange and ginger in the soup. Will make again.

I'm having this soup right now. Yum! Made a few adjustments. I used 1 lb beets and 12 oz carrots. Doubled the amount of garlic and ginger. Also added some black pepper, dried sage, and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper for a kick. Topped with a dollop of sour cream, perfect for cool weather!

This soup was delicious!! I changed it slightly, my friend was the one who thought of this and it turned out absolutely amazing! I used chicken broth and once the soup was cooked, I added one can of coconut milk to it. It was amazing, almost like a chowder. Thank you for this recipe!

This is an easy and delicious soup. Perfect for fall. Substituted fresh avocado for the sour cream because we did not have. Still good. Next time I may add a little dill. Thank you.

Yummy & healthy minus GMO canola oil!!! DD1 (5 years old) DD2 (1 1/2) and I liked this soup a lot. I used organic beets which I cut medium-small, light tasting extra virgin olive oil, organic carrots, 2 big organic garlic cloves, a bit of dried ginger as I thought I had fresh but didn't, water & sea salt, two small strips of orange zest which I removed one and blended the other in part of the soup keeping some whole veggies, no pepper as I didn't have any on hand, no optional, along with the rest of the ingredients. Made for Healthy Choices Tag Game 2013.

For some reason this soup did not hit the spot. Very healthy but not enough flavor for us.
