Whether it originates in Germany, Russia or the Ukraine, borsch is borszcz is borscht! It's hearty and heart healthy beet soup (or stew if you prefer). I prefer to make it as a stew as it then sticks to the bones as one might say here in the below zero tundra. Borscht can be made with of without meat and with or without the rice wine vinegar and tomatoes/paste. How much or little one adds of these ingredients can alter its taste significantly. Necessary however are the beets, potatoes, celery, carrot and cabbage. This recipe works best served hot with a dollop of fat-free yogurt and a little extra parsley on top along with some oyster crackers. Make a lot, you'll want to have more than one bowl.
