A Cold Summer Soup of Beets and Pimento Pepper

“This is a wickedly-good concoction � a soup that�s perfect for summer! The colour is so beautiful � a deep, rich vermillion - and with a drizzle or dollop of dill-infused crème fraiche, it�s nearly too pretty to eat. Fortunately, the taste lives up to the stunning visual!”

Directions

  1. To make soup: Put all the soup ingredients in a blender. Process for 45-seconds to 1 minute, or until you have a completely smooth puree. Taste and adjust seasoning. Empty into a food-safe container and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to marry flavours. (Can be made up to 2 days ahead).
  2. To make Crème Fraiche Drizzle: Combine crème fraiche with finely-minced fresh dill. Refrigerate until ready to use. (Can be made up to 2 days ahead).
  3. To serve: Serve soup in pretty white bowls, if you have them, as the colour is so amazing. Drizzle with the crème fraiche and top each with a fresh sprig of dill.
