Borch - Russian Beet Soup

101

One of my favourite recipes is Russian beet soup, or borsch. I love that it's such a healthy soup recipe. I love that it's stuffed with veggies like beets, cabbage, and carrots. I love that it bursts with flavor from all of the delicious ingredients. I also love the nostalgic feeling I get everytime I prepare it. In one bite, this soup takes me back to my childhood in Ukraine. I remember the hills, the warm summers, the beautiful weather.
