    1 or 2 small beets
    1 small onion
    1 medium potato
    1 carrot
    1 celery stalk
    1 cup (250 mL) red cabbage, shredded
    2 cups (500 mL) vegetable stock
    1 cup (250 mL) tomatoes, crushed
    2 cups (500 mL) water
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) dill
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) caraway seeds
    1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) black pepper
    2 to 3 Tbsp (30 to 45 mL) natural cane sugar
    1 to 2 Tbsp (15 to 30 mL) apple cider vinegar

    Using a food processor, grate all the vegetables and place them in a pot with the stock, tomatoes, water, dill, caraway seeds, and pepper. Bring to the boil, reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are very soft, about 25 to 40 minutes. Add sugar and vinegar, stir, and simmer another 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings and serve. For a more elegant soup, blend before serving. Serves 8 to 10.
