Beet soup

Beet soup is a soup made with beets as the primary ingredient. It is usually served cold, although some versions are served hot. Beet soup can be made with either red or yellow beets, and is sometimes made with a combination of both. Beet soup recipes vary depending on the region, but common ingredients include potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and dill.

Beet soup has a long history, and recipes for it can be found in cookbooks dating back to the 16th century. The earliest known recipe for beet soup comes from Germany, and was published in 1581. This recipe calls for the soup to be made with red beets, cabbage, and beef.

Over the centuries, beet soup has been popular in many different countries. In the 18th century, a version of the soup became popular in Poland. This version of the soup, called borscht, was made with beef, potatoes, carrots, beets, and cabbage. Borscht is still a popular soup in Poland today.

Advice

When making beet soup, the most important advice is to use the freshest ingredients possible. Be sure to use organic, locally-sourced beets when available. It is also important to use a good-quality stock to give the soup a rich flavor. Additionally, don't be afraid to experiment with spices and flavorings to find the perfect combination for your tastes. Be sure to taste the soup as you go, and adjust the seasoning accordingly. Finally, be sure to simmer the soup until the beets are tender, as this will ensure the best flavor and texture.
