Prepare the vegetables for the soup: Wash and rinse all produce. Dice the onion in 1 cm dices. Peel the potatoes and beets and cut in 1 cm dices.
Cook the onion: In a large pot on medium high, add oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp) and onion and cook for about 5 minutes until tender. This should take about 5 minutes.
Cook the soup: Once the onions are tender, add salt (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp), pepper (1 pinch, 1/8 tsp), Christmas spices, potato dices, beet dices and water (4 cups, 8 cups). Note that you can adjust the amount of water based on how thick you like the soup. We recommend adding water until it just covers the vegetables in the pot.
Bring the soup to a boil on high heat and cook about 30 minutes until the beets and potato are fork tender.
Blend the soup: Place the soup in the blender* and blend until smooth, about 1 minute. If required, blend the soup in 2 batches to ensure the blender is not overfilled. Return the blended soup to the pot. Combine. Taste and adjust salt and pepper as desired.
*Note: If you don’t have a blender, skip this step.
Prepare the toppings: Cut the dill in small pieces of about 2 cm long.
Assemble and serve: In individual bowls, place the soup, Pour the cream in a measuring cup with a beaker* and draw a spiral in each bowl. Use a knife or spoon to create a fun design with the cream and the soup. Garnish with the dill. Serve.
*Note: If you don’t have a measuring cup with a beaker use a spoon.
*Note: If you don’t have a blender, don’t use the cream as it won’t look good. Decorate the soup with fresh dill.
