Beetroot soup with potatoes and leeks

A while ago we went for dinner with friends. She told us she was going to cook a delicious beetroot soup. So we had an idea how she would cook it. But to our surprise she started peeling potatoes and cleaning leeks. She fried them in olive oil and cooked them until ready. Only then she added the beetroots. The result was a hearty beetroot soup with a bite of crunchy asparagus.
