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 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 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.
