Beetroot & Pomegranate Soup (Low Fat)

I saw this in a vegetarian cooking magazine and the photo looked so stunning I had to add it. It will be a hard sell to get my husband to try anything with beets but I love them so I will give them a shot the next time I am cooking for myself. You could probably use pomegranate juice to save the actual juicing process but I am not sure how much juice you get from a pomegranate to give an equivalent measure.

    Very tasty! I made it with yellow beets, so the color was different, but the taste was still fantastic.
