"This is a rich, flavorful, vegetarian soup that hits the spot! Sweet and spicy undertones complement the beets. Great as a meal or as an appetizer." — roadmama

Wow! This is so good! I used vegetable oil spray instead of the olive oil, and used thyme instead of tarragon. Without the recipe, I would have missed having a wonderful soup! Thanks for sharing!
This soup was fantastic; perfect for a cold day. I left out the basil and it had quite a hearty flavor while the soup itself was not too heavy.
I'm completely satisfied with this recipe! It's absolutely delicious and great fun to make. :) Thank you so much for sharing it - I will definitely be making it again!
Very hardy and flavorful! Getting over the mentality that anything pink/red should be sweet is an issue for me, but after the first bite I'm usually ok.
Wonderful; make it for 16, and everyone (who liked beets) loved it.
