Five-spice beet soup
adapted from: Bon Appetit 
4 servings

1 T olive oil
1 medium-size red onion, thinly sliced {2 cups}
1 celery stalk, chopped
4 medium beets, scrubbed, trimmed, peeled, each cut into 6 wedges {about 3 1/2 cups}
1 liter vegetable broth {4 cups}
3 t grated peeled fresh ginger
1/4 t {or more to taste} Chinese five-spice powder*
salt and pepper
optional: plain yoghurt or goat cheese
optional: beetsprouts, sliced celery leaves or coriander

one: heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Add onion and chopped celery stalk and cook until tender, about five minutes. 
two: add the cut up beets and the vegetable broth, cover the pot, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer the beets until they are soft when pierced with a knife {15' to 20'}
three: mix in the ginger and five-spice powder.
four: transfer the soup to a blender, cover and puree until smooth. Another option is to use an immersion blender, but please, watch out for splatters! 
five: season to taste with salt, pepper and more five-spice powder.
six: serve with a dollop of plain yoghurt or goat cheese and beetrootsprouts or coriander, if you have it on hand.

three: spread over the curry paste, then roll up, starting with the longest edge.
four: cut into eight slices and transfer to a baking sheet.
