Winter Comfort Food: Borscht

It's finally that chilly time of the year, when soup warms the soul and keeps away the colds. One of the best things about soups is you can add anything to them, and they almost always turn out delicious. We just had a freezing spell, and I wanted to make a soup using vibrant colors and hearty flavors. I decided on Borscht, and concocted a recipe using ingredients with healthy benefits. Enjoy my recipe!


2 boxes of veggie broth
Canned beets or fresh beets (your choice, if canned I like to use the juice too)
Rhubarb (cut into small pieces)
Cabbage (regular or red)
1 whole sweet onion
colored carrots cut into smaller pieces
Potato cut into smaller pieces
Juice from 1 whole lemon
2 bay leaves
a little dill (because you will be putting fresh dill as garnish when served)
2 tablespoons of Ketchup
a little salt

Sour cream and fresh dill

Throw this all in a big pot and cook until done. Serve with a dollop of Sour Cream and a little fresh dill. Yummy!
