Roasted Beet Soup with Potato and Dill Salad
By Melissa's Corporate Chefs


1 1/2 pound Organic Beets tops trimmed
12 ounces Dutch Yellow™ Potatoes
2 1/2 cups Heavy Cream
4 tablespoons Red onion chopped
4 tablespoons Dill chopped
3 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
1/2 cup Sour Cream
Dill for garnish


Preheat oven to 400°F. Wrap beets and potatoes separately in foil; seal tightly. Roast on oven rack until tender when pierced with skewer, about 45 minutes for potatoes and 1 ½ hour for beets. Unwrap and cool completely.

Peel beets; cut into 1 inch pieces and place in blender. Add cream, 2 tablespoons onion, 2 tablespoons chopped dill and vinegar; blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate soup until cold, about 1 hour.

Peel potatoes and cut into 1/4 inch dice. Place in medium bowl. Add remaining 2 tablespoons each of onion and chopped dill. Fold in sour cream. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover beet soup and potato salad separately and refrigerate.) Ladle beet soup into 4 bowls. Top with potato salad; garnish with dill sprigs.
