Borscht: Beet Soup Recipe

Serves 6

There’s no better way to simplify your weekly cooking routine than with soup! It’s healthy, filling, and so easy to make! Borscht is a traditional Russian/Ukrainian dish that mainly consists of beets, cabbage, and tomato, but it is one of those dishes that is made differently in every family.
It’s one of those soups that you can really make to your own preferences – add meat, beans, more beets, less cabbage, or anything else your heart desires.
Bon Appetit!
