Today is day 1 of the December Recipe Challenge.
Since it was snowing when I went to class this morning, I decided upon something hot, delicious and FULL OF VEGETABLES!
I came across this recipe a few days ago and was instantly inspired!
Vegetarian BorschtInspired by Mostly Soup 1 Small Onion
1 tsp minced garlic (2 cloves)
1 Pound Beets (peeled and shredded)
1/2 lb carrots (shredded)
1 medium potato
1/2 cabbage (thinly sliced)
2 tbsp Olive Oil
4 cups of vegetable broth
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Sour Cream (optional)
Gather all your ingredients:
Wash your veggies, peel your beets…
Use a handy dandy food processor to easily shred everything
Then heat the oil, add the onions and garlic with some salt and pepper. Sautee them for about 2 minutes.
Add the beets, carrots, and potato. Cook for about 5 minutes. In the mean time, heat up your vegetable broth. When you slice your cabbage, don’t use a crappy knife… it sucks.
Add the vegetable broth and cabbage. Simmer for 20-30 minutes. Then add the juice of 1 lemon.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and enjoy! I had it with a slice of pumpernickel toast! Mmm!
That was super fun to make! It also helped that the lovely fella was there to take pictures and do the dishes! I can’t wait to make another fun/healthy recipe!
What do you like to have on a cold day?
Anyone else make an exciting new recipe?
