Steps to make Polish Beet Borscht


Preheat oven

Preheat the oven to 350 °F


Wrap beets in foil


Wrap each beet in foil and place on a baking sheet.


Roast beets

Once the beets are cool enough to handle, peel them and cut into julienne strips.


Simmer soup


In a large pot, bring 4 cups vegetable stock to a boil. Add the julienned betts, 1 minced garlic clove, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and salt and black pepper to taste. Simmer for 15 minutes.



Ladle the soup into bowls and top with a dollop of sour cream. Add a sprinkling of fresh chopped dill. The soup can be served warm or chilled.
