    We followed the recipe except omitted the water. At the end of the cooking, we pureed the soup with a hand blender and served with creme fraiche on top and crusty bread on the side. It was delicious! Also a great way to get rid of a bunch of beets and potatoes quickly.

    This was delicious. It was easy. And it was a beautiful soup (perfect for the holidays)! Plus, my husband said "Mmm, this is yummy!" I'll be freezing the rest and looking forward to delicious leftovers.

    This was so yummy! I added more beets and potatoes and cooked it a little longer and then used a hand blender to puree half of it to thicken it up. It was sweet so I didn't add the sugar either.

    This is a great soup recipe that is both easy to make and tasty to please everyone in the house. Plus, it's the best comforting soup recipe I've found that is also quite good for you. Great weeknight recipe!

    This was so incredible! Wonderful color and texture. I followed the recipe exactly and was delighted with it. I used organic beets and have some left overs that I'll add more greens to.

    Excellent & easy-to-prepare. Given how sweet carrots & beets are naturally, I should have omitted (or at least halved) the sugar. That said, I added a splash of red wine vinegar & some sriracha (my go-to condiment) to temper the sweetness. Also, my grocery store was out of beet greens, so I used kale. I might try spinach next time (cooks faster, for starters). I will definitely make this soup again, though!

    Good, but not long term filling on its own. I followed the recipe except I omitted the brown sugar.
