Serves: 8 servings (1 cup each)
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

 

 
2 tablespoons butter
3 medium onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 medium potato, peeled and chopped (about 1 cup)
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cans (about 14.5 ounces each) sliced beet, undrained
3 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth (Regular, Natural Goodness® or Certified Organic)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill weed or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed, crushed
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
sour cream




Heat the butter in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until they're tender-crisp. Add the potato and garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Drain the liquid from the beets and reserve 1 cup beet juice. Stir the beets and broth in the saucepan and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the potato is tender.
Place half of the broth mixture into a blender or food processor. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour into a medium bowl. Repeat the blending process with the remaining broth mixture. Return all of the broth mixture to the saucepan. Stir in the reserved beet juice, dill and black pepper. Cook over medium heat until the mixture is hot. Serve with the sour cream.
