chilled beet and watermelon soup
 
1 Tbsp  vegetable oil
1 medium  onion, peeled and sliced
1/2 lb.  beets, peeled and roughly diced
4 cup  chicken stock or low-sodium chicken broth
1 tsp  salt
2-1/2 cup  diced seeded watermelon (rind removed)
 
heat oil in a stockpot over low heat. add the onions and cook slowly, stirring, 
about 7 minutes. add the beets and continue to cook slowly, covered, until most 
of their water has been released and they have fallen apart, about 35 minutes. 
stir often to avoid sticking and burning. 
add the stock and salt, cover and bring to a boil. reduce the heat and simmer, 
covered, for 15 minutes. when the soup is finished cooking, strain and reserve 
the liquid. 
transfer the beets to a blender or food processor and add the watermelon. puree 
until very smooth. return the puree to the pot and add the reserved liquid, 
mixing to combine. chill the soup well, about 4 hours before serving. 
 
yield: 6 servings
