I'm the only one in the family enjoying the beets. Usually I eat them cold with some salad and potatoes after they have been roasted at 400 degrees F for about 35' (in a oven safe dish with a little bit of water - covered with aluminium foil - peeled after baking when cooled). Here I made a soup mixing the beets (cooked as I just wrote) + water + orange juice (1/2 of the water) + onions/garlic fried until tender + salt/pepper). Recipe from the Everyday Greens cookbook (which uses 3 types of beets for adding color to the dish). Do not forget to put some orange threads (obtained putting them in boiling water for 1 minute or 2) and some "creme fraiche " on the top.
