1 small onion, chopped                                                                         3 medium beets w/ leafy tops
6 cups vegetable stock                                                                        ¼ cup lemon juice

Cut off beet tops; discard stems and any wilted leaves.  Use kale if beet leaves are not available.  Coarsely chop the leaves.  Peel the beets and shred coarsely.
Heat oil in a 5-quart pot over medium heat.  Add onion and carrots and cook, stirring occasionally until vegetables are soft (about 10 minutes).
Add beets and tops, cabbage, lemon juice, sugar, dill weed, and stock; bring to simmering.  Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until beets and cabbage are tender (about 45 minutes).  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Garnish with sour cream.
