Good question. I'm assuming it's to impart a nicer flavor to the soup than the raw beet would. Essentially roasting the beets with potatoes, onion, and olive oil would give it a less "raw" character. I'm sure they don't really have to be cooked. If you're into the flavor of raw beets and onions, go for it, though I'd eliminate the potatoes. I don't think the starch in raw potatoes is easily digestible.
Why do the potatoes and beets have to be cooked first? Sorry if that's a stupid question, but I'm as new to this as a new-born baby is to oxygen. Thanks!
