From the Vitality Food Feature ‘Balance Your Hormones with Cures from the Kitchen‘.
This simple, low-calorie vegetable borscht showcases the flavour and colour of beets and red cabbage with a backdrop of fresh dill. Phytonutrients known as anthocyanins are what give beets and red cabbages their deep magenta colour. These nutrients are powerful antioxidants that repair and protect our DNA from the damaging effects of free radicals.
(Makes 8 servings)
Egg-, Soy-, Dairy-, Nut- and Wheat-Free, Low GI
1) Place oil, onion, and garlic in large stock pot and cook until onions soften, about 5 minutes.
2) Add all remaining ingredients, except for dill, and bring to a boil.
3) Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 40 minutes. Add dill just before serving.
4) NB: If you want the soup to be authentic and are ready to test dairy in the last phase of the Slimming Meals That Heal Plan, consider topping each serving with a tablespoon of sheep or goat yogurt for a creamy contrast to the sour soup.
