Cook Tools and Details
- Rinse the beets, place it in a large saucepan, and add water to cover. This will help to keep the beets from bleeding. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Place pot under running cold water and let rinse until beets can be handled. The skins can now be easily peeled off the beets. Peel and shred in a food processor with the cheese grater attachment or shred with a cheese grater
- Heat oil in a large stockpot and sauté the onions, carrots, and the garlic in water and cook about 5 minutes. Add tomato paste, and stir until evenly distributed and coated. Add 1/4 cup water along with about 1/2 tsp salt. Stir to combine, cover and reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Add the cabbage, potatoes, broth, remaining water, sweetener, bay leaves, and the pepper and remaining salt, return to a boil, cover, and simmer on low for another 30-40 minutes, stirring a couple of times (if the soup is too thick you can add more liquid, but I like it thick and chunky).
- Add the shredded beets 5 minutes before the end of the soup cooking.
- Add the lemon juice. Adjust salt and pepper at this point as well. If you like the soup a little tangier add another tbsp of lemon juice.
- Serve with chopped fresh dill, crushed garlic, sour cream, and black Russian bread. For the vegan version, skip the sour cream.
