Ukrainian Borscht

Ukrainian Borscht created by Jonathan Melendez

This is a meatless (not vegetarian) Borscht, and even my husband, who MUST have meat with every meal, loves this! Sometimes we make it in summer and serve it cold. It's very tasty! It came from a cookbook many years ago, but I can't remember which one. And I've changed it over the years and I do my own thing, there is no need to measure any of the veggies, it always turns out wonderful. So eyeball it! (Your food processor will come in mighty handy for shredding all these veggies!) Enjoy!

    I am curious about the note, "I use Johnny's", following the ingredients "salt and pepper to taste". Is something missing there or is there something different about Johnny's salt and pepper?

    Reminds me of my childhood. My German Russian mom always put cubed beef in her borscht. That’s my favorite way to eat it.

    There were typing errors..read someone's cauliflower plus potato.. I don't have cauliflower, do have white fleshed sweet potatoes & large baking potatoes.

    About to rely on your recipe. Have you tried this without cabbage? I have white sweet potatoes as well as large potatoes for baking. I saw but can't find now half a tip from zone ne who had cauliflower w potato. I have m cauli, and also wonder whether paprika would be tasty. New to making borscht, cold for summer, thank you.

    Can you specify the first 2 steps of the instructions? The 1st just says cook the veg with the broth. There are no specifics on what temperature (medium, medium-high, etc). The 2nd step says cook uncovered, which may imply that in the 1st step, you need to cover the pot. Some clarification would be greatly appreciated.
