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?

I see Wegman’s olive oil — I’m so jealous!! I wish there was a Wegman’s around here! 🙂
I love warm, soft things on a cold day: thick soup, oatmeal, a big bowl of pasta…
I’m pretty much obsessed with Wegman’s (pretty much the best part of moving to upstate NY haha). I think it’s become my new favorite grocery store! I seriously go about 4 times a week and most of the time I don’t actually need anything, I just like walking around for fun.
I’ve never tried borscht before- yours looks good though! One of my favorite dishes to eat on a cold winters day is vegetarian shepherds pie. It is the ultimate comfort food!
That sounds delicious. I don’t think I’ve ever tried shepard’s pie (veg or non-veg). Got any good recipes??
This looks great! And great blog! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Yours looks great too!
This looks amazing! I hope I can whip something up for the December Recipe Challenge tonight 🙂
such a great challenge, I probably should do it sometime soon too! it’s soooo fun! look how many ingredients you got there!!! hhahaha…… and the end product looks pretty delicious!
I’ve never tried borscht before, but I’ve always wanted to. I love beets. Good work on the challenge!
