    CHILI SPICE's Note:

    My husband's heritage is Ukrainian, he grew up eating borscht and still loves it. If you would like to make this Vegetarian or Vegan, just omit the meat and/or the sour cream (I do and we aren't vegetarians). My husband rates this as one of his favorite soups I make (5 stars)! I cook this one Vegan style.

      Very good! I was able to combine a lot of ingredients I had on hand to make this soup. I used the crock pot to cook it all.

      I absolutely hate to only give this recipe 3/5 stars, but this just didn't do it for me. I had made borscht before and didn't like it, but was determined to give it another try with a different version. I guess now I know for sure that I don't like beets. I must say though, this borscht had such a lovely color! Aside from the beets, the other flavors blended together so nicely. You couldn't even really taste the beets unless you got a chunk on your spoon. Better luck next time, I suppose. Thanks for sharing!

      Never had it before but always wanted to try it. Fabulous thick soup which I made as posted including the pork sausage. I most likely will make this again but leave the sausages out next time. Great recipe! Made for the Aussie/NZ RS#39, the ANZAC Biscuits.
