    I wanted to try beet soup as a healthy choice for company eating. It was simply amazing! So colorful, unique and restaurant gourmet taste. Made it as directed and blended it before serving. All the flavors were balanced and we wanted a second dish! Definitely an easy soup, delicious and very healthy for you.

    1. Hi Shirley, we only used a pinch of dill in this recipe, about 1/16 of a teaspoon. Add more or less to your liking!
