Try a new thing and make a wish, as my family would say, with this savory soup — cooled down with sour cream.
Top tips from me:
1) Try to chop everything up before cooking. The timing of boiling the cabbage and potatoes while sauteing the beets and other veggies was a bit stressful. 2) Expect the beets to stain your fingers. The juice will wash off the cutting board, spatula and knife, however. 3) Use a cheese grater to shred the beets. 4) Try this even if you don’t think you’re a fan of beets!
This recipe takes about an hour, including prep, and serves 6-8. Feel free to cut it in half if you just want a bowl then some leftovers.
