Vegan Beetroot Borscht

Change language / Schimba limba: Română

 This beetroot borscht is a healthy vegan soup recipe inspired by the traditional Ukranian borscht soup and it is perfect for any season!

Today is a cold Autumn day. The wind is howling and the leaves started to fall. I really wanted to make a hot, flavorful soup to warm me up from inside-out and enjoy it while I watch a good, old movie. I decided to make this lovely, ruby-colored beetroot borscht.

Vegan Beetroot Borscht

This beetroot borscht recipe is similar to the Ukrainian borscht, but unlike the original recipe, it was made vegan, as it does not contain any beef broth.

Beetroots are amazing veggies and should be eaten as often as possible! This beetroot borscht is a great way to add more beetroots into your diet. Another way would be drinking this awesome pink lemonade!

Give it a try! I’m sure it will become one of your favorite soup recipes! 🙂

This is so easy and comforting! Will definitely do this again soon. Thank you, Ruxandra!

P.S: can I leave out the celery leaves? (my daughter doesn't like them at all)
