What you'll need

  • 2 cup thinly-sliced green cabbage
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1 med onion, coarsely chopped
  • 4 cup non-fat, reduced-sodium beef or chicken broth, divided
  • 2 can (15 ounce each) chopped or sliced beets
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 cup reduced- or non-fat sour cream
  • 1 dash Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp. finely-minced fresh chives, for garnish


  • Step 1
    Put cabbage, celery, carrots and onion in a large pot. Pour in 1/2-cup broth, bring to a simmer and cook gently until vegetables soften, about five minutes.
  • Step 2
    Stir in beets and their liquid, 1-3/4-cup broth and tomato paste. Cover and simmer ten minutes. Stir in vinegar. Remove 1-cup of the beets and set aside to cool. Add remaining broth to soup and pureƩ in blender or food processor until smooth.
  • Step 3
    Gradually add sour cream and blend until smooth. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste. Dice cooled beets and stir into soup.
  • Step 4
    Chill soup, covered, until just barely cold. (If too cold, its subtle taste won`t be appreciated.) Serve soup with chives sprinkled on top for garnish. (Soup may be stored refrigerated up to four days but should be left standing to take off chill before serving.)
