Borscht

Submitted by: MICKIE27

Introduction

This soup turns out to be such a beautiful ruby colour. It's intended to be served cold, but if you're feeling chilly, it tastes great warmed up too! This soup turns out to be such a beautiful ruby colour. It's intended to be served cold, but if you're feeling chilly, it tastes great warmed up too!

Directions

1. Heat large soup pot on the stove (medium heat). Put 2 TBSP of water in the pot (for sautéing without oil).

2. Add shallot. Let sauté for about 30 seconds.

3. Add carrots. Stir and let sauté for 3 to 4 minutes.

4. Add the chicken broth.

5. Once broth comes to a boil, add beets, salt and pepper. Cover and lower heat to medium.

6. After 30 minutes, test the beets. If they are not tender, give them a few more minutes cooking time. If they are, add the lemon juice.

7. Let the soup cool a bit so that it is safe to blend.

8. Pour the soup into a blender. Gradually increase speed to high and blend until smooth.

Great work! You made Borscht!
