About the Dish:
Borscht is a traditional Eastern European soup that is known for its vibrant color and rich flavors. It is typically made with beets, which give it its distinctive red hue, along with a variety of other vegetables and sometimes meat. This hearty soup is perfect for cold winter days and is often served with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of fresh dill.
