    Borscht By Victoria Boutenko

    Serves 7 to 10 | Special Equipment: Blender or Vita-Mix


    3 beets, peeled
    1 small root ginger, sliced
    3 to 4 cloves garlic, peeled
    6 to 7 bay leaves
    2 carrots, chopped
    2 stalks celery
    2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (we use the water from our Italian olives instead!)
    1 tablespoon honey 3 to 4 oranges, peeled, seeds removed (we use Agave nectar instead of honey!)
    1 cup olive oil
    Sea salt to taste
    1/2 cup walnuts
    1/4 head cabbage, diced or grated
    1 to 2 carrots, diced or grated
    1 bunch parsley, diced or grated


    Blend the beets, ginger, garlic, and bay leaves with 2 cups water in a blender or Vita-Mix. Pour the mixture into a big bowl.

    Blend the carrots, celery, apple cider vinegar, oranges, honey, olive oil, and sea salt with 2 cups water about 30 seconds. Add the walnuts and blend on low speed very quickly, so they break into small pieces but do not blend. Pour in the same bowl and stir. Add the cabbage, carrots, and parsley to the blended mixture. Stir and serve.

  • Incredible!
    This was my first attempt at borscht and I am pleased with the results. My only changes were using cilantro instead of parsley because I like it better and adding the juice of one key lime at the end to brighten it up; sort of Mexicanized it. It's really good. Might add some tabasco later. - 7/2/12
