Creamy Beet Soup Without All the Cream

This is a vibrant color of soup, deep crimson-red as only beets can be. And the taste is pure beet. The creaminess of this soup comes from the potato that is cooked with the beets -- there is no cream at all in the soup so the calorie count is light. I've eaten this hot, but it would be equally good cold, which would make it a wonderful soup for summer. Recipe from Cooking Light which calls this a "rich velvety soup which is a mild version of borscht -- without the cabbage."
