Ciorba de legume cu leustean

Vara imi place sa fac ciorbe din legume. In functie de  ce gasesc prin gradina (daca sunt la tara) sau prin frigider, ciorbele mele contin o mare varietate de legume. Exista, insa, ceva ce au in comun: leusteanul. Asta pentru ca mi se pare cea mai potrivita aroma pentru o ciorba acra. Ciorba de legume cu leustean este vedeta zilelor toride de vara, pentru ca se poate manca si rece.

English version
  In summer I like to eat vegetable sour soups. Depending on what I find in the garden (if I am in the country) or in my refrigerator, my soups contain a variety of vegetables. But there is something they have in common: lovage. That’s because it seems to me the best flavor for a sour soup. Here, in Romania we give the sour taste of the soup using bortsch. It is made from bran and water left a couple of days until it becomes sour, than the liquid is filtrated and used. If you don’t have bortsch, use lemon juice. 
Ingredients for a 5-6 liter pot

* 2 medium onions, chopped
* 2 medium carrots, chopped
* 1 parsley root, chopped
* 1 celery root, chopped
* 1 green pepper, chopped
* 1 zucchini, chopped
* 3 l water (or 1 l  water + 2 l chicken broth)
* 3 tablespoons oil
* 1 can peeled tomatoes in tomato sauce
* 1 bundle lovage, finely chopped
* 1 liter bortsch (or lemon juice to taste)
* Salt to taste

1. Heat oil in the pot and fry the onion until it is soft.
2. Add other vegetables (not zucchini) and fry them a bit.
3. Put water (or water + soup) and boil until vegetables are slightly soft.
4.
Add zucchini and tomatoes and leave until the vegetables are cooked
5. Puts hot borsch and boil 3 minutes.
6. Add salt.
   7. Take the pot from het and add the chopped lovage. Stir. Cover.

    Pai mai Brandusa…eu de unde sa iau bors? 🙂 Am incercat sa facem aici si nu a iesit prea bine din pacate. Imi lipseste foarte mult mai ales vara!

    Pai nu iese ca nu avem cu ce sa il incepem- daca am avea macar un pic sa punem pe tarate, ar merge, dar nu am gasit si nu ne lasa astia sa le aducem din Romania prin vama.
