Baby Borscht

We’re calling it ‘Baby Borscht’ because there are only a few ingredients and it takes just like a grown up borscht.  🙂

This is our first go at a recipe with ‘teff’.

Teff is this teeny tiny grain – I believe the world’s smallest.

This quiet, little powerhouse has a great amino acid profile… it is high in lysine, which is a protein that is essential for repairing muscle and for those that may get the occasional cold sore!

All you need…

  • 2 onions
  • 4 carrots
  • 2-3 medium beets
  • 1/4c of teff
  • 1tbsp of maca powder
  • lots of fresh dill
  • water

Chop up your onions, carrots and beets and throw them in a pot.

Drizzle a little bit of good olive oil over the veggies and let them heat up for a bit on medium heat.

Add in the teff and six cups of water.

Let it all simmer for about thirty minutes.

Add in the maca powder and half of your dill. Puree the goodness with a smart stick, remove from the heat and stir in the remainder of your chopped dill.


A little S&P to taste and you have one delicious, healthy meal to enjoy.
