Delicious, hearty soup shared by student from Ukraine during an international cooking demonstration while I was in grad school. No recipe but she graciously prepared the soup again for me in her kitchen while I estimated amounts. Despite initial reservations, my children love it. Even better when reheated as flavors blend more.

I have never tried borscht before and although I was interested in trying it, the beets intimidated me. This was one of the best soups I've ever had. It's fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing this.
