Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: In a large pot, heat some oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, and sauté until fragrant.
  • Step 2: Add the beets, cabbage, potatoes, and carrots to the pot. Stir in the tomato paste and vinegar. Cook for a few minutes, allowing the flavors to blend together.
  • Step 3: Pour in the beef or vegetable broth, and bring the soup to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 30-40 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Step 4: Remove the pot from the heat and let the soup cool slightly. Using an immersion blender or a regular blender, puree about half of the soup until smooth. This will give the soup a thicker consistency.
  • Step 5: Return the soup to the heat and simmer for another 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Step 6: Serve the borscht hot, garnished with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of fresh dill.
