Hemp Borsht

Borsht is a traditional Russian specialty. It is a very tasty soup which is loaded with powerful cancer fighting antioxidants.

Makes: Enough for 3
Prep Time: 15 min

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp hemp seed oil
1/2 cup hemp seed hearts
4 cups of beet (peeled & chopped)
2 cups of beets (shredded)
3 cups of water
1 large avocado
1 small onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic
1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp tamari

Directions:

Combine all ingredients except shredded beets in a blender. Blend on high until creamy and smooth. You may need to help stir it if you do not have a strong blender (a Vitamix is best!).

Borsht can be served hot or cold. If you prefer it hot, place the blender mix in a pot and warm it on the stove on low (if you have a Vitamix, it will warm by keeping it blending on high for 5 minutes). Stir the shredded beets into the hot or cold mixture and serve. You can garnish with strips of fresh chives.
