1/4 cup sour cream 65 mL
2 tbsp chives, fresh, chopped 6 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: chop the onions and garlic; peel the beets and potatoes, then cut them into large chunks.
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, then sauté 3-4 min until soft. Grate the ginger and add it to the pan. Cook 1 min with stirring. Add the beets and potatoes, then pour in the broth, bring it to a boil, cover and simmer 1 h. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Take the pan off the heat, let it cool down a few minutes then purée the soup in a blender or food processor. Adjust the seasoning, then ladle the soup into bowls. Garnish with sour cream and chopped chives, then serve (warm or at room temperature).

Remarks

The soup keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer.

My mom use to make Borsch and this is almost like it without the beef shanks. We loved it and I would make it again with the the beef shanks next time to have it meaty. Great recipe and easy and fast to make.

This was very tasty, I'm not used to beetroots and found it slightly on the sweet side, but good as a small portion for a starter. Will make again soon!

I am a novice cook and I was very impressed with how well this soup turned out. Simple enough to make and the end product - "Wow". I have nothing but good things to say about this soup: - It is a nice portion size which is very thick and filling and yet has so few calories per serving. - I had this soup for lunch and it is great on its own for lunch with a nice roll. - I also enjoy cold soups and I believe this one will make a great one to use for dinner now that summer is fast approaching either as a cold soup or luke warm.
