No one knows more about making soup to warm you all the way through than the Russian grandmas who serve steaming bowls of this beloved beet soup! Even if you've never been much of a fan of beets on their own, give this rosy-colored soup a try. It's luscious, it's unbelievably low in calories and fat, and it's tasty enough to heat up a winter in Siberia!
Serves 4 (1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 (16-ounce) can diced beets, undrained
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans Swanson Beef Broth
1/2 teaspoon caraway seed
1/4 cup Land O Lakes no-fat sour cream
In a large saucepan sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, sauté onion for 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in undrained beets, lemon juice, beef broth, and caraway seed. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. When serving, top each bowl with 1 tablespoon sour cream.
HINT: If you can't find diced canned beets, purchase canned sliced beets and insert a sharp knife in can or jar and coarsely chop.

Each serving equals:
