Beet Soup

Margy grew some nice beets this year. I made up this soup last night and we thought it was pretty good.
Beet Soup
4 large beets, trim ends, quartered
1 qt vegetable broth
1 large onion
2 T. minced fresh ginger
4 lg cloves garlic, minced
1 t. ground cumin
2 T. olive oil
1 T. each vinegar, lemon juice, vermouth or sherry
lots of black pepper
salt to taste

Boil beets until tender. Rinse in cold water, remove skins. Saute onion, garlic, ginger in olive oil. Put it all together with broth and puree in blender. I added a cup or two of water as it was too thick.
Serve with dollop of sour cream.

made this today but added an already-opened can of diced tomatoes, a yellow pepper and a small zuchinni that needed to be eaten. i sauteed everything with olive oil and chucked it in the blender with the boiled beets. delish!
