I'll be posting my version of Marlena Spieler's Fragrant Beetroot and Veggie Soup with Lamb Kubbeh. Apparently, in the U.K. beets are called beetroots and you can actually buy them in a vacuum sealed container. I found out that they sell them at Trader Joe's..in the refrigerated section above the frozen food. I roasted my beets..then peeled, etc. Next time, I am buying them already done.
There are many steps to this making this dish, but it was well worth it. I plan on having the condiment that is drizzled over it on hand for many other things! This dish is not for beginning cooks..in my opinion. Dave said it was one of the best things he has ever eaten..and it was.
If anyone is interested in making it ahead of time, post a comment and let me know. Otherwise, I'll see ya on Sunday. Also, until Hanukkah, we will be posting Marlena's recipes on Wednesdays as well. Be sure to check out Eileen and Shankari's blogs for their recipe posts too..as all of our dishes together would make a nice addition to any holiday celebration this year, and certainly Hanukkah.
