Seven soups every Saturday: beet soup recipes

Easy pureed beet and carrot soup, from Jeanette's Healthy Recipes.

For 36 years, my husband Ted has believed that I don't love beets. Not true. I do love them, but he over-the-moon loves them, so I'm happy to give him the lion's share of whatever I cook with beets. The nice thing about making beet soup is that there's always enough beet to go around. Beets are rich in antioxidants, and the longer they're cooked, the more those good nutrients leach out. So soups made with beets should be quick to cook. Naturally sweet, beets also take well to savory flavorings, and beet soups are delicious hot or cold. There's more to beet soup than borscht.

Seven beet soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Chilled corn and golden beet soup, from No Recipes

Beet soup with anchovy-walnut paste, from Chocolate & Zucchini

Easy pureed beet carrot soup, from Jeanette's Healthy Living

Beet and fennel soup with kefir, from Love and Olive Oil

Greens 'n' all beet soup, from A Veggie Venture

Beet curry soup, from Mac & Cheese

Beet, barley and black bean soup, from Lisa's Kitchen

Find more delicious beet soup recipes on Food Blog Search. Come back every Saturday for seven soup recipes to enjoy any day of the week.

I always enjoy your soup collections each Saturday - thanks so much for including one of my soups. I'm looking forward to trying some of these other beet soup recipes. Have a wonderful weekend.

Came home with a bunch of beets from Farmers' Market
this morning. Was I ever glad to see this post!
Great vibes across the miles.

Jeanette, I love beet soups and I think they have a bit of a bad rap (all borscht!). I'm looking forward to trying these recipes, too.

Marcia, so glad our timing is good today!

I love beets, I just wish they had less sugar, sigh. I think the only beet soup I've made is borscht, but these sound good!

I adore beets, but I don't think I've ever tried them in a soup!

Kalyn, I know what you mean. I love them too, but they're like a candy bar to me.

Pam, you must try them -- so good!
