Jarred beetroot are great for this recipe, making it ready in minutes. You can save the juice, freeze it and add it in place of the chilled water or ice. Try serving with a dollop of soured cream.
Use half fat soured cream to lose some of the fat and calories.
Used different ingredients. I added extra lemon juice (one whole lemon), onion, salt, lots of pepper and an entire tub of soured cream (plus extra for garnish), then added cold ice water until it was the right consistency I made this as a starter for a vegetarian dinner party, and everyone LOVED it. Delicious and simple!! My favourite kind of recipe!!! - 24 Jul 2008
I am not a great beetroot lover. However, this was fantastic. It took longer to wash and dry the blender than it did to make the soup. How do you spell "scrumptious"? - 24 Jul 2008
