I made with recipe without the extra water.  I chopped the beets and the recipe turned out more like savory beet salad than onion soup.  With or without the added water, I'd expect beet to be the prominant flavor, unless extra onion is added.  I really liked the recipe on day three and on.  It has a really long refrigerated shelf life (more than a week), and the flavors mellowed and blended as time went by.  This was a great recipe to prepare on the weekend for the following work week's lunches.


You should add 1.5 to 2 cups of water to this one, I mistakenly left out a few cups.  ::)
