Nothing says summer like a chilled soup! This one is from the amazing Patricia Wells. It literally comes together in minutes, Just be sure you make it couple hours before you serve it so it has plenty of time to chill. I cheated and used the cooked beets from TJ’s, which in my opinion is perfectly acceptable.
1 lb steamed, peeled beets
2 c cold water
2 cloves garlic, green germ removed
1 onion, quartered
1 tsp dijon
1 TBSP sherry-wine vinegar
Several TBSP minced chives for garnish
Toss everything except the chives in a Vitamix or powerful blender. Purée till smooth. Chill for at least 2 hours.
Top with chives at serving time.
Serves 4. 1 WW PP.
