What are some of the foods that come to mind if you had to name a few Ukrainian dishes quickly? I bet Red Borscht Recipe (Beet Soup) would make the list. That’s because it’s one of the most iconic foods of Eastern and Central Europe.
And that is because it’s usually associated with fond childhood memories and home cooking. This incREDible soup often finds its way on our dinner table also. There are many variations of this borsch out there. This one is a hot, meat variation.
Red beats are often called the heart of the vegetable kingdom because of their intense red color. Loaded with health benefits, rich red beets and filling potatoes are the main elements of the soup. Along with savory cabbage, a must be included also. It doesn’t take long to cook but is always enjoyed. Preparing the veggies and grating the beets is the most time-consuming thing, but using a food processor can help speed that along also if you like.
This hearty and delicious meal makes for a convenient and delicious main meal for a weeknight. It should be served with a dollop of sour cream to get the true Ukrainian experience from it. And if you like, sprinkle some fresh dill or your favorite spices as well. Enjoy! 🙂…
