Can't wait to try the rosemary red soup. All of the ingredients are things we all love - except the beets - and if I puree it, they'll never know!!

I made this soup for dinner tonight. I cheated a little bit - didn't puree all of it, leaving some nice chunks of beet. I loved it, and both the 23-month old and 40-year old boys in the house gave it glowing reviews. Yums all around once again, Cynthia!

Making this for Shabbat dinner tonight. Yum. Does it freeze well if I double the recipe?

Ida - yes this freezes well.

where do i find miso?

Hi Nina, Not sure where you live so it's hard to say where you would find it. Most natural foods stores carry miso, also Asian supermarkets. Westbrae - one of the producers of miso - has a store locator here: http://www.westbrae.com/store_locator/index.php

I make this soup for my birthday every year. It was the soup that got me to reconsider beets after hating them since birth. Now I love them, as long as they're fresh!

I love this soup. I get lentils in sealed plastic bags from my grocery store and I soak them for a few hours. After soaking, I notice that they are a much lighter shade of orange. Am I losing nutrients by soaking them?

Hi Anna, Soaking the beans would result in negligible nutrient loss.

For hubby with severe legume allergy, could you substitute cannelli beans or what would you suggest?

PS, hubby also thinks he hates beets. Can't wait to surprise him with this recipe. Think I'll tell him it's made with red velvet cake!

I just made this soup tonight and it was fantastic! It was so pretty, and the flavor was incredible. Seriously, I could not stop raving about it. Thank you so much for this creative recipe. It is unlike any other soup that I make, and I'm so happy to add a new one to my repetoire.

Now that the air is getting chilly, it's time to pull out the yummy root veggies! I made this soup for the first time today for lunch: YUM! And it was fun to see the colors changing as it cooked and then when it was pureed, it changed again. It sure made a lot, so I'm definitely freezing some for later. I really like the lentils in this, pureed, it lends a nice flavor and texture.

Delicious--don't omit the miso (had to make a trip to the store). Gives a unique depth of flavor.

So, I've said it before and I'll say it again...my 5-year old daughter LOVES this soup. Tonight she had 2 bowls full with olive tapenade on top. And when I was packing up the little bit that was leftover, she asked that I save it for her to eat tomorrow, The recipes says this serves 6-8, but in our family it barely feeds 4. We can't get enough of it.

I was so excited to make this soup and even made the extra trip to the store for the miso and it didn't work?! I ended up with Rosemary dirt tasting soup?! What did I do wrong? Please help.

Made this for dinner tonight - it was tasty and a nice change. Used golden beets, so it wasn't as pretty, but we have two little boys and I was worried we might never get red beets out of their clothes. Served it with plain yogurt and the parsley-pumpkin-seed garnish - which was very worth making - it added a lot. Thanks!

Rosemarry red soup seems to be delicious in taste as seen from the above pics. Its recipe is very simple. Thanks and regards.

I live in a country where I have not yet been able to find red lentils. Could I use regular lentils? Or some kind of bean? Maybe yellow split peas? I could use a suggestion. Also, a substitute for miso? Thanks!

KJG, Hi there. The thing is the red lentils cook MUCH faster than other kinds of beans or lentils and they require no soaking – so not as easy to substitute as they might seem. You could try yellow split peas, but soak them overnight first. Just use 1 teaspoon of salt in place of the miso.
