hot or cold beet-fennel soup

Wow, I had to really hunt around for this photo of Hot or Cold Beet-Fennel Soup. I made it a while back, and I thought that meant late fall of this past year. Turns out I made it in February 2021. Time continues to be a fast-moving blur. 

This is a puréed soup that begins with cooking down fennel and some other aromatics, moves along to simmering beets in stock, and ends with everything soft and whizzed up in the blender. You can serve this soup hot or chilled and garnished with whatever floats your boat (or floats on top of soup). I went chilled, with shaved fennel, crème fraîche, caviar and pink peppercorn. This was nice for lunch, and apparently it is still fresh in my mind, as I thought I made it just a few months ago, but I’ve made some heartier and more flavorful variations of beet borscht even more recently that I’ve liked better. 

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.
