Green Borscht

green borscht



  • 5 potatoes (I use yellow potatoes)
  • 3-4 chicken thighs (bone-in preferable)
  • 1 cup of spinach chopped up (if you have sorrel, use it instead. It’s better in this soup)
  • 3 large eggs (boiled)
  • 1/3 cup chopped up fresh parsley (italian or regular)
  • 1/3 cup chopped up fresh dill
  • 1/3 cup chopped up green onion, * when you chop the onion put the green part separate from the white part. (you would need both)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1-2 Bay leaves (fresh or dry)
  • 1qt of 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 a side.
  • Add peeled and cut potatoes into the water and boil till potatoes are soft.
  • Meanwhile, chop up all the greens and boiled eggs.
  • Chop up the white part of the onion and saute on butter till light brown color.
