Serve this delicious, earthy tasting soup with warm crusty bread. I named this soup in honor of my Russian online friend. Since it has beets in it, it reminds me of borscht. I used whatever vegetables I had in the house. Sometimes I add a can of beans; you can experiment with it.

Borscht is beet soup, not vegetable soup.
