I made this for a small dinner party and everyone really enjoyed it. The presentation is gorgeous. I used the advice of other reviewers and eliminated the two cups of water and ended up using an extra half cup of chicken broth because that's what was in the container. The texture was perfect. I also diced up some feta cheese and put that on top of the soup along with a little bit of fresh dill. Yum! Will definitely make it again.

I've made this soup a few times. It is super easy and soothing. If you love beets, you'll be a fan if you don't....well you're probably not even reading these reviews. I served the soup with some chopped fresh dill and I added a dollop of sour cream before serving rather than stirring it in to some of the soup. It makes a fantastic lunch when served with a big slice of Russian or German Rye bread.

I just made this soup. It is excellent! I love it and am definitely making it again. I skipped the sour cream and water tho. In this way, I had a thick soup after I put all the ingredients in the blender. Also, instead of a Dutch oven I used a pressure cooker to cook everything. This recipe is very simple and quick to make!

I made 1/2 the amount as I did not need 8 servings. I chopped the beets and potato in food processor before cooking and then did not puree at the end since I like my beet soup chunky. As with other reviewers I skipped the water but did use 3 cups broth. I added some cole slaw mix, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp allspice.

It was good and easy to make. However could of used more beets and potatoes, and made only 3 servings.
