This is a simple and easy recipe for Borscht, from Classic Conran, Plain, Simple and Satisfying Food.
There are many good Borscht recipes, this recipe creates a thinner but very flavourful soup which is sweet but still has that great earthy flavour. This is a great soup both hot and cold.
Garnish with a swirl of soured cream or plain yogurt and some chopped chives
I think my mom worked on this recipe my whole childhood, trying and retrying until she got it perfect. Needless to say growing up we ate a lot of Yorkshire pudding! Here's the final recipe my lifetime later.
These are just satisfying. As the story goes the recipe came from an old cook book my Grandmother had.
They're also great using dried cranberries instead of Dates, and wholewheat flour instead of all purpose.
