Ingredients for Beet Soup with Sage and Shallots Recipe

1 bn Small organic beets (about 4
Or 5 beets)
(leave the stems on up to 2
Or 3 inches, but wash well
Around them)
x Assorted leftover
Cruciferous veggie stems
(optional, I used broccoli
And cauliflower stems,
1/2 c Rice vinegar (unsweetened)
x One day, or a few hours
4 Sage leaves
1/2 c White zinfandel or other
White wine
2 lg Shallot cloves
4 sm Cloves garlic
1 tb Canola oil
x Salt
x Pepper, fresh crushed
x Few drops maple syrup
2 tb Creme fraiche (similar to
Sour cream)

Beet Soup with Sage and Shallots Preparation

Thickly slice the beets and simmer in water ~30 minutes until cooked. Include the stems of leftover cruciferous veggies in this simmer. Strain and place in a bowl with 1/2 c rice vinegar and water to cover. Let sit overnight in the refrigerator, or for as long as you can. Use the beet leaves for making a green veggie to eat. The next day, or later: Strain the beets from this liquid, place in a food processor with sage leaves (stems removed). Process, adding a little wine or water as needed. (Discard the vinegar, or save it for the next batch of vinegared beets, in the fridge). Slice the shallots and garlic. Saute in a little of the canola oil, with the shallots first, then later add the garlic (in order to avoid overtoasting the garlic). After about 4 or 5 minutes, add the wine. Simmer a minute or two. Add this mixture to the food processor and continue processing. It is nicer if some graininess remains, but a fine graininess. Place this mixture back in a pan. Add about 1 or 2 cups of hot water, remaining canola oil, and salt (1/4 tsp) and pepper to taste. Stir and simmer a few minutes, add 3 drops maple syrup. Pour into 2 regular or 1 large wide soupbowl, leave room on top. Top with 1 or 2 T creme fraiche, and stir in well. Serve hot. From: Lu Bozinovich <>. rfvc Digest V94 Issue #172 August 17, 1994.
