Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 pounds beets, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a large Dutch oven or pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion. Season with salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Add beets, broth, and enough water (4 to 5 cups) to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium, and simmer until beets are tender, about 20 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Using a blender or an immersion blender, puree broth and vegetables until smooth. If using a blender, work in batches and fill only halfway, allowing heat to escape: Remove cap from hole in lid, cover lid firmly with a dish towel, and blend. Transfer to a clean pot as you work. Adjust soup's consistency with a little water if necessary. Season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
