Ina Garten makes a version of this dish, so we thought we'd put our own spin on it. Serve cold or hot. It's perfect for Valentine's Day!

Wash the beets, and make sure to scrub them vigorously. Cut the tops off and place them in a large pot. Cover with water and liberally salt. Bring the water to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for about 30 minutes or until the beets are tender. Once cooled, peel and dice them.

In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add onion and cook until softand transluscent. Mix in brown sugar, salt, cloves, garlic powder, pepper and diced beets. Add broth and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Using a hand blender or food processor, puree until smooth. Gently mix in the Greek yogurt and lemon juice until the mixture is a uniform color. Taste for seasoning and refrigerate until ready to serve. If serving warm, serve immediately. 

Prior to serving, top with some yogurt and dill.
