Borscht (also Borsht or Borschch) is a traditional soup from Eastern Europe, where prominence is given to Beetroot and other vegetables and meat.

2 variations of this soup are possible, hot and cold.
Really tasty, with fantastic flavors. The color is deep red due to the beetroot.

Even if in general you don't like soups (like me), i really suggest to try it once, delicious, specially in cold winter days when you come back home.

Absolutely not difficult to make at home, can also be served with sour cream to complete the delicious dish.

Here's how to make it:
