Beet Soup
This was a quick and easy recipe when you have some extra beets on hand or when you don't want to fuss around with making "real" borscht. I definitely cooked the beets for about an hour instead of the recommended cooking time. I also eyeballed the amount of beets/broth and ended up with a fair amount of soup. Instead of putting this all in a food processor, I just cooked it in a large saucepan and used my immersion blender to liquefy it. It turned out a bit on the thick side, but there were no chunks at all. (cutting beets into smallers pieces helped) Novices be warned- this can get messy quicky! Wear your apron and be prepared to wipe up spills quickly. All in all, this was a GREAT taste for such an easy recipe. It's not "serve for company" soup, but it makes a nice homemade batch of warm comfort food.
