    Very Good
    I also added the beet greens to this...excellent! Then I topped each bowl with a dollop of Greek yogurt and snipped fresh chives. Serve with toasted rye that has been rubbed with a fresh garlic bulb to dip in the juice. - 8/14/10

    Very Good
    I pureed everything because I prefer smooth soup - very good! And a fantastic magenta color to boot ... Hooray for beets! - 1/28/08

    I've been on a "beet kick" lately (a "hard sell" in my household) but this recipe was DELICIOUS (all members concur!) As is my habit, I pureed no less than 1/3 of the soup. And I "dolloped" our bowls with REGULAR Sour Cream (I know, a MAJOR "bad", but also a MAJOR "hit" at our table). We LOVE this. - 1/28/08
