Borsch

Ingredients:

• Diced onions (about ½ medium onion)
• chopped cabbage (about 3 cups)
• 2 cloves of medium size garlic, grated or pressed
• Water or broth (6-8 cups and then add more as needed. For broth I like to use beef, I boil the beef for about 2 hours then remove it from the broth and add it at the end together with beets) You can use vegetable broth, or just water.
• Diced tomatoes, about 2 tablespoons (canned or freshly diced)
• 1 tablespoon of ketchup, or tomato paste
• 2 or 3 medium to large sized peeled beets, may have stems (grate, or slice beets raw; cut up steams)
• 1 or 2 medium carrots (grated, or sliced)
• 2-3 medium potatoes (I prefer yellow, diced)
• Bell pepper, about ¼ cup (diced)
• Fresh dill, (2 tablespoons, diced, I love a lot of dill)
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 1 teaspoon of white vinegar
• 1-2 Bay leafs
• Optional ingredients: White beans (my grandmother was Ukrainian and she often added them to borsch)
Peel the beets and shred them, cut up stems in about 5mm pieces. Place them in the pot, add about a teaspoon of white vinegar, olive oil, a little bit of salt and black pepper (I do not add water, just cook them in their own juice); cook them covered on low heat until tender.
While beets are cooking:
Sauté carrots, onions, and peppers add tomatoes and tomato paste at the end, cook everything a little longer.
Add diced potatoes, cabbage and sauté vegetables to the pot ofboiled broth (If you would like to add any other optional vegetables (ie. beans, peas, beet greens, etc.) do so now.
Allow soup to simmer on medium until all vegetables are tender(test them with a fork or by biting into them!).
Add beets, pressed garlic, bay leafs and bring to a boil and then reduce to medium heat, boil for 2 minutes.
Stir in chopped fresh dill, salt and pepper, and meat if you boiled it at the beginning. Cover the pot and turn it off.
Serve hot with a scoop of sour cream and a slice of bread and butter (rye bread is best!)

Borsch - Or Blood Soup for Halloween! You could float a few spiders or something in it.
