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.
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'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.
I LOVE this recipe! I make the following changes:
1) I use a blender to puree the soup after it has cooled.
2) I add the diced cucumber to be blended into the chilled soup.
3) I add 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of unflavored yogurt to blender to combine everything smoothly.
