How to make borscht?

Place the pot on the heat and add the organic beetroot, carrot and onion. Simmer until the vegetables start to soften (about 8-10 minutes). Add a little water if necessary to prevent the vegetables from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Then add the crushed garlic, cabbage and potato cubes. Simmer until you smell garlic.

Then pour in the stock or water and add the bay leaf. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat. Let the soup simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the vegetables are soft. Add more stock if you want a more liquid soup.

Remove the pot from the heat, mix in the lemon juice, maple syrup and sea salt. Flavour as desired so that the end result is slightly sweet and sour.

Serve with Indian nut sour cream and herbs. Enjoy!
