Traditional Russian "Green Borsch" or spinach soup with a spicy American twist.

Recipe Ingredients for Spinach Soup

1/2 gallon water
2 potatoes, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
8 cups spinach
2 eggs
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 cup lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Spinach Soup

  1. Bring water to boil over medium heat.

  2. Add chopped potatoes, chopped carrots, black pepper, salt, and red pepper flakes.

  3. When potatoes and carrots are moderately cooked (still firm in center) add fresh spinach.

  4. Turn heat down to a lower level (just a simmering boil).

  5. Once the spinach has wilted add 1/4 cup lemon juice and cayenne pepper (more or less to taste).

  6. In separate dish scramble eggs.

  7. When spinach is fully wilted and potatoes and carrots are cooked to desired tenderness, slowly pour scrambled eggs into soup, stirring vigorously as you pour.

  8. Allow soup to come back to a low boil, once it does, the soup is ready.

  9. Note: the only change to the traditional recipe is the addition of cayenne and red pepper. If you eliminate this you will have a very mild traditional green borsch.
