This pureed beet soup adds a deep red color to your menu. It is a perfect starter for dinner or, on its own, a good lunch. Everyone I've served it to has oohed and aahed over it. You can garnish it with chunks of soft goat cheese or sour cream. I got the recipe from my grandson and his girl friend, but have increased it and made a few minor changes. Save the beet greens that you trimmed off and wash them and either steam them in a little broth or saute them in olive oil. Do not overcook them. They are delicious and colorful served with meat, poultry, fish, or even other vegetables. Be sure to buy fresh beets that don't look shriveled or dry, or which have limp greens on them.
