red wine vinegar
cucumber - peeled, seeded, and diced
This was my first time to even cook a beet. It turned out great! I went exactly by the recipe and would not change a thing.
I'm not sure what Borscht is suppose to taste like, I had never even heard of it before I saw this recipe. I was just looking for something new to make. I followed the recipe with out any changes so I assume it turned out correctly. However, I found it almost completely tasteless. I will probably not make this again.
This was easy and simple... I modified it by buying cooked beetroot in my Tesco produce section and then just softened the onions with the beef broth. Then I just blended it all in my blender. I also added cooked ground (minced) steak which i lined the bottom of my bowl with and poured the delicious hot pureed soup on top. The dollop of sour cream was lovely and i swirled it in each bowl before serving for presentation purposes. This is not only great chilled but also quite delicious hot... great recipe!
Made this for a party and got rave reviews. I loved that it is a very simple recipe so you can really taste the beets. The amount of red wine vinegar is perfect!
I LOVE this recipe! I make the following changes:
1) I peel the beets first and dice each beet into 6-8 pieces. This releases more flavor into the liquid as it boils due to increased beet surface area.
2) I use a blender/food processor to puree the beets after they have cooled.
3) I add the diced cucumber to be blended into the chilled soup.
4) I add 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of unflavored yogurt to blender to combine everything smoothly.
This was the first time I've tried Borscht what an amazing flavor and this recipe made it so simple to make. I cook for 20 to 25 people daily
everyone enjoyed it.
First time making borscht, I did substitute the red wine vinegar with Apple cider vinegar, added galling salt, and a can of potatoes pureed and mixed in to thicken it, because after making it, it was pretty watery. But over all I absolutely love it!
