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!
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 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.
I'm trilled with this recipe! A polish woman I knew made the most wonderful borscht and this is just about it! I'm happy beyond words! Changes I made to match her recipe: no onion no pepper apple cider vinegar instead of red wine vinegar and I strained the final soup. (Her's was served as a broth.) I remember her pressing the heck out of the beets in the strainer to get every last drop of juice so I did the same. The proportions in the recipe are spot on and it tastes great. I have to admit I don't even add the sour cream. It's great on it's own.
