1 1/2 pounds cooked beets,* diced
2 cups water
3 tablespoons sour cream or plain yogurt
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
2 teaspoons fresh dill
Blend all ingredients together and pour into 4 bowls. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of fresh dill.
*Beets can be steamed or boiled. For a richer flavor, cut them up into 1/2 inch pieces, toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper, and place on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes or until tender, turning halfway through. Use for this soup, or in a salad, or just on their own as a tasty side dish with sautéed kale and goat cheese.
