Cooking process

Borsch with prunes is one of my favorite types of borscht. You can prepare it both on a meat broth, and a lean variant. I often cook lean, because it tastes more prune. Prunes give the borscht spicy notes and a pleasant taste. Such borsch is an excellent dish for a family dinner, try it!

To prepare borsch with prunes, prepare all the necessary products from the list. Immediately put a pan of water on the fire and bring to a boil.

Ingredients for borsch with prunes

Chop the onions and cut the potatoes.

Cut the onion

Rub grated carrots and beets.

Grate the carrots and beets

We start cooking borsch with roast. In a frying pan, heat the vegetable oil, add half of the onion, lightly brown, add carrots and beets, cook until soft.

Fry vegetables

Slice the pieces of Bulgarian pepper and add to the roast. I used canned pepper in this option.

Put the pepper

Pour tomato juice into the vegetables in the frying pan, bring to a boil. Salt and pepper the roast to taste, add the garlic and remove from heat. Leave the frying pan under the closed lid until it is not needed.

Add garlic

When the water boils in a saucepan, dip the onions and potatoes into it. Shred cabbage.

Cut cabbage

Once the potatoes in the saucepan boil, add the cabbage and cook until done.

Put the cabbage in the soup

Rinse and cut the prunes. I like large pieces of prunes in a borsch, so I just cut it along into 2 halves.

Cut prunes

In a saucepan pour the roast and dip prunes and chopped dill.

Put prunes and dill

Balance the taste of borscht with spices to taste. Bring to a boil and voila! Borscht is ready!

Put the fennel
