Red Cabbage Borscht

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sweet PQ

This recipe differs slightly from the one already posted here, so I thought I would add it. I got this recipe 20 years ago, from a girl I used to work with. This makes a really "yummy" borscht (and I am usually so-so on the subject!)

A very nice Borscht. Made using Pam cooking spray in place of the butter. The red wine vinegar I used was a cabernet sauvignon wine vinegar. While a very nice soup felt it was lacking something. Ended up adding another teaspoon of dill and that helped. Will be making this again. Thanks for the post.
