In a heavy bottom sauce pan fry the onion and garlic, add the puree, stir for a minute add the water the vinegar, cover the pan and simmer on medium heat for 30 minutes up to an hour. Depends on how tender and soft you want it, and add some water if needed.

Add almond powder, Parmesan cheese and heavy cream, cook for 5 minutes.

You can use hazel or walnuts instead of almonds.

Try to rinse the blender quick because beetroot will color its plastic.
