Lithuanian Beet Soup

This is a recipe handed down from my great-grandmother, a Lithuanian immigrant. Like many recipes from the "old country", it is easily adaptable to what you have on hand (more or less beets, cabbage, etc.) Traditionally beet soup is served with a dollop of sour cream, but I prefer it plain and my daughter likes it topped with parmesan cheese. This is a great comfort food and is loaded with nutrients!
