Soup From the Beet leaves (Botvinnik)
1 hour Recipe Yield:
2,2 l Difficulty:
Soup From the Beet leaves (Botvinnik) – warm vegetable soup with the addition of beet tops. Unlike botvinya, this soup is not cooked with beetroot kvass and without fish delicacies. The soup is very simple and light, there is one caveat - the tops, which are not on sale for a long time, but this is not a problem, the tops are easily frozen.
When the potatoes are soft, salt the soup, pepper and add chopped beet leaves. Mix everything, cover and cook for another 5 minutes. Botvinnik is served warm with sour cream. Some people don't really like the beetroot sweetness in the soup, this is easy to fix by drizzling the soup with lemon juice.
