Borsch

Remember that greenhouse with the aquaponics system that we put together? Well we planted some plants and these beets were the first harvest! We made some borsh with the beets! It turned out really great. The beets were some heirloom kind which resulted in small roots and lots of leafy greens.


Ingredients:

1 lb of cubed beef
2 shredded carrots
about 1 lb of beets, shredded
beet greens, chopped
1 onion, chopped
beef broth or water
2-3 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2-3 potatoes cubed
3 tablespoons sunflower oil
salt and pepper to taste
sour cream for serving

Directions:

1. Saute carrots and beets in a dutch oven until soft. Add in garlic and onions.
2. Add in the beef until browned.
3. Add in potatoes, tomato paste and cover with beef broth or water
4. Add in the chopped beet greens.
5. Cover and simmer until cooked about 30-40 minutes
6. Serve with sour cream.

Nothing, it was great. 

What Kaspian thought about it:

He was too suspicious to eat it. Well...it is a pink soup

No changes.
