So, you might not automatically think of a winter famine staple as ‘festive’ but I couldn’t help but think ‘Christmas’ the last time I made my daughter’s borscht:
So, here’s the ingredient list and directions:
Onion, potato, beets, beef stock, cabbage, lemon juice, salt & pepper to taste, dill (fresh in season)
Sauté onions in oil. Add beef stock, beets and potatoes. Top with beef stock and simmer until beets are soft.
Simmer until soft.
To serve, add lemon juice to bowls and a spoonful or two of sour cream. A nourishing soup, even more festive when paired with a rich green spinach salad. Enjoy.
