Delicious, light soup! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it's a little bland as it is. I added 1/4-1/2 cup chopped, fresh cilantro which complimented the buttery taste of the beets; and I used 5 cloves of fresh garlic. It fits the bill for a light supper when you don't want something heavy! I served this soup with whole wheat sour dough toast and a salad. My husband loved it, and I'll definitely make it again. This would also be a great "company's coming" soup and can be a substantial main meal with added navy beans or chicken. If you've ever wondered what to do with fresh beet greens, you won't be disappointed!
