Big L has been talking to us for weeks about making borscht. On Sunday, Aaron finally took her to the store and helped her get the ingredients. She needed: 3 beets, a 10lb bag of potatoes, a cabbage, salt and red pepper.
If I was to write the recipe, it might be something like this:
- 3 beets, chopped
- 6-7lbs potatoes, cubed
- half a cabbage, chopped
- pinch of salt
- pinch of red pepper
- dash of sugar
However, I’d probably chop the vegetables finer or even use the food processor, but that’s my preference. Natasha’s Kitchen also has a recipe for Russian Borscht, which is supposed to be quite good.
She was quite proud of her soup. We all praised her on it, and said we’d add cooking to her list of things she’s good at. Then, we listed off everything we knew she was good at, while she smiled shyly.
