This ruby – red beet and greens soup has the flavour of sweet roasted beets combined with dill and a tangy balsamic vinegar that will make this beet and greens soup recipe a favorite! This recipe makes a healthy and delicious addition to your meal planning for the week.
Beets are not only delicious; they are packed with nutrients, are high in fibre, and have been associated with lowering blood pressure amongst other health benefits. This soup is delicious on its own or with a dollop of sour cream, coconut cream or yogurt on top.
Avoid staining your hands with beet juice by using rubber gloves. But I have found beet juice washes off fairly easily with soap and warm water.

1 Lb medium sized beets, scrubbed clean and trimmed
1 medium onion
2 Tbsp olive oil

1/4 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp Balsalmic vinegar
2 tsp chopped fresh dill or 1/2 tsp dried dill
Beet and Greens Soup
I cook the beets in the crockpot until soft(about 45 minutes-1 hour, depending on the size of the beets). You could also wrap each beet individually in foil and bake directly on rack in center of 375 F oven for about 1 1/2 hours until tender. Remove foil and let stand until cool enough to Handle. Peel beets and grate them.
Chop onion and sauté in olive oil in a large saucepan until soft, about 5 minutes.
Add stock to onions and bring stock to a boil. Add spinach or beet greens, pepper, beets and onion. Cook uncovered, for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are heated through.
Add balsalmic vinegar and dill. Stir. Makes about 5 1/2 cups
This soup is great as is or a dollop of sour cream or coconut cream on top goes nicely with it. Enjoy!
