RedCabbage&BeetrootBorscht hero

This warming Ukranian-inspired soup uses earthy beetroot, red cabbage and potato for a deliciously comforting dish that's perfect on chilly days. 

Fry the onion in olive oil for 10 minutes over a low heat.

Put the water, beetroot and potato in a large covered pan, bring to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the cabbage to the onion, and cook for 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook for 2-3 minutes

Blend the potato and beetroot until smooth, then add the onion and cabbage and season. Serve with a blob of crème fraîche and freshly chopped chives.
