I came to love beets late in life. As a child, no amount of threats could make me eat the vinegary slices that we were served in the UK. Then a vegetarian friend of mine served me roasted beets. What a difference! I started to experiment. I ate borscht! This soup started out as a curry, then one day I blended some leftovers and ended up with this gorgeous-looking, delicious soup. The color was unbelievable. Try it with a swirl of sour cream or Greek yogurt and garnish with a pinch of cilantro.
