Borscht soup has a special place in my heart.  So I decided to share my family recipe for a vegetarian borscht.

Beetroot soup

This vegetarian version of borscht soup it tastes just as good as the meat version. Borscht soup is easy to make, and it’s the perfect recipe to use up those beets you might have laying around. 

Usually, you serve borscht soup with sour cream on top, but you don’t have to add it if you don’t eat dairy.

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of ½ lemon
