About the Dish:
Borscht is a traditional Eastern European soup made with beets as the main ingredient. It is a hearty and nutritious dish that is often enjoyed during colder months. The soup has a vibrant red color and a unique flavor profile that combines the earthiness of beets with the tanginess of vinegar and the sweetness of carrots. Borscht is typically served with a dollop of sour cream and crusty bread.
