Recipe Ingredients for Romanian potato Borsch

2 large potatoes, diced in medium-sized chunks (I like Yukon Gold)
1 red bell pepper, diced in smallish-sized chunks (if you?d like to use 2, it would be great)
1 medium onion, diced
50 g beets, grated
1 large carrot, grated
1/2 head of cabbage
5 g bay leaves
3 cloves of garlic, finely minced (if you like more, you can add more)
2 tbsp of tomato paste (I used catchup instead)
1 Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups of water
100 g dill

Recipe Directions for Romanian potato Borsch

  1. 1. Cook the potatoes and cabbage in a pot of boiling water till just tender. About 10 minutes or so.

  2. 2. Saute all the veggies (onion, grated carrot, grated beets, and diced bell pepper) till just soft. About 5-10 minutes or so.

  3. 3. Combine the ingredients to one pot (whichever pot is larger). I had a cast-iron pot where I sauteed the veggies that had enough room to add the potatoes, cabbage, and the cooking liquid of those, so that?s what I did. I transferred the cabbage, potatoes, and water to the pot with the veggies.

  4. 4. Once combined, check the salt level, add the bay leaves, check the water. This is where we added 2 cups of water.

  5. 5. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer about 15-20 minutes. Check water again. If it?s too thick, add more water. We added about a quarter cup at this point.

  6. 6. Add the minced garlic and minced dill (dill, salt, pepper are all to taste).

  7. 7. Turn off the heat and let the pot stand there for about 10 minutes.
