    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    This is a vibrant color of soup, deep crimson-red as only beets can be. And the taste is pure beet. The creaminess of this soup comes from the potato that is cooked with the beets -- there is no cream at all in the soup so the calorie count is light. I've eaten this hot, but it would be equally good cold, which would make it a wonderful soup for summer. Recipe from Cooking Light which calls this a "rich velvety soup which is a mild version of borscht -- without the cabbage."

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a dutch oven or large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté 3 minutes or until tender.
    2. 2
      Add broth and next 6 ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered 20 minutes or until the beets and potato are tender. Be sure to discard bay leaf at this point.
    3. 3
      Puree mixture using an immersion blender. You may also use a blender or food processor, being sure to process in 3 batches. The blender will probably give the smoothest results, but I thought the immersion blender gave satisfactory results (plus was easy to use). Return pureed mixture to the pot if necessary. Warm soup over low heat 5 minutes. Remove and stir in lemon juice.
    4. 4
      Remove 1/2 cup of the soup and transfer this into a small bowl. Combine it with the sour cream, stirring with a whisk.
    5. 5
      Ladle the soup into individual bowls and top each serving with one tablespoon of the sour cream mixture. Using the tip of a knife, swirl the sour cream, making a pretty design.
    6. 6
      This recipe makes 8 servings (3/4 cup each) at 74 calories.

      I like this very much. I used Oikos fat free Greek Yougurt instead of sour cream and just mixed in a few tablespoons in each bowl then topped it off with a dollop of yogurt and a basil leaf for color. It's easy to make and easy cleanup.
