My boyfriend's Russian cousin, Olga Tuchman, gave me this authentic recipe that her family loves. I have not made it yet. With meat, it is a very filling and satisfying meal.

How to Make TSCHI (RUSSIAN CABBAGE SOUP)

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, bring water to a boil and add meat. Over low heat, let the meat simmer, covered, for 1-1/2 hours.
  2. Raise heat and add potatoes and cabbage. When water boils again, reduce heat to low and cover.
  3. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a medium skillet and add the grated carrots and chopped onions. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomato paste and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the contents of the skillet to the soup pot. Add salt, pepper, and garlic. Let simmer for another 15 minutes.
  5. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream.
  6. NOTE: If you don't have any meat, you may use canned beef broth (half water/half broth), or one can of stewed beef. Put the vegetables together with the broth or canned meat and cook for 40 minutes.
