Golden Beet Borscht

3 large golden beets, peeled and diced
4–6 cloves garlic, whole
1/2 red onion, chopped
good handful new potatoes, diced
1 apple, cored and diced
1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
healthy drizzle of olive oil
Coarse salt and pepper 

• Preheat the oven to 375°. 
• Throw all the veggies on a foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and salt & pepper and toss.
• Throw in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until cooked through.
• Once cooked, throw in a food processor with about 2 tbsp vegetable broth and puree. 

6 small golden beets, peeled and grated
2 handfuls new potatoes, bite-sized pieces
1/2 small red cabbage, chopped
3–4 c vegetable stock
dash of sriracha
dash of worcestershire
coarse salt & pepper 
1 tsp allspice 

• Throw all your ingredients, including roasted veggie puree, into a big soup pot. Add enough vegetable stock to just cover everything. 
• Cook over medium heat about 30–40 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through.

sour cream
fresh dill, chopped

• Serve topped with sour cream and dill. Done!

 So this really isn’t much different from this recipe, just different beets and a few veggie swaps. The golden beets and the added apple made it a much sweeter soup. I had all these dreams of a beautiful golden orange soup, but the red cabbage turned the colour … maybe try savoy if you want to keep the colour a little more pure. 

And just to moan and cry at my own failures, I made the world’s shittiest (read: inedible) biscuits to accompany the soup. Note to self: measure your baking soda and cream of tartar. Don’t just eyeball it because you are too bloody lazy to wash your measuring spoons. So gross.
