SO HOW'D IT GO?

Loved it! I used 4+ cups of beets and I added about 1 Tb of thyme. After it was done (about 35 minutes later) I transfered everything in the blender... Delicious!!

This was crazy-delicious!! I do not normally like beets, but this was so sweet, rich and full -- very much like a butternut squash soup. LOVED it. So nutritious, too, and a great way to eat that "rainbow" diet. I will make again and include a photo next time. It was gorgeous.

I LOVE that you incorporated the beet tops as well. So much nutrition and flavor as well as less waste so it is a very economical dish. I'd love to try this!

PS: I have also made this adding a cup or so of fresh raw spinach to the beets. It gives a bit of depth to the flavour.
