    I am not a great beet lover. However, this was fantastic. It took longer to wash and dry the blender than it did to make the soup. How do you spell "scrumptious"?  -  04 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Wow! I made this soup on the hottest saturday here in california. I used 1/2 a Maui Sweet onion and ate it all the soup myself. Yum!  -  27 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a gorgeous soup. It really needs sweet (maui) onions. We used red onions and it was way too oniony.  -  07 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
