  • 1 cup onion, minced
  • 4 cups beets, trimmed, peeled, and diced

  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoon sour cream (optional)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add the beets and carrots and cook for 5 minutes. Add the broth, water, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the pan, and simmer until the beets are very tender.
