Green Borscht

green borscht

 

Ingredients

    • 5 potatoes (I use yellow potatoes)
    • 3-4 chicken thighs (bone-in preferable)
    • 1 cup spinach, chopped (if you have sorrel, use it instead. It’s better in this soup)
    • 3 large eggs (boiled)
    • 1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped (Italian or regular)
    • 1/3 cup fresh dill, chopped
    • 1/3 cup green onion, chopped * when you chop the onion, separate the green and white parts (you will need both)
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 1-2 bay leaves (fresh or dry)
    • 1 qrt water (4 cups)

  • Fill up a pot with water (about four cups). Add in the chicken and bay leaf. Put in 1/2 Tablespoon of salt. Boil for 30 minutes. Strain boiled chicken into a bowl, transfer the water back into the pot, and put the chicken pieces aside.
  • Add peeled and cut potatoes into the water and boil until the potatoes are soft.
  • Meanwhile, chop up all the greens and the boiled eggs.
  • Chop up the white part of the onion and sauté on butter until light brown color.
