Borscht

Borscht is a simple beet soup typically made with beef broth and garnished with sour cream. We give it a kick with horseradish. For a vegetarian soup, use vegetable broth instead.

Serves 4

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cups reduced-sodium beef broth, or vegetable broth
  • 1 medium russet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups steamed cubed beets, 1/2-inch cubes (see Tip)
  • 2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Add broth, potato, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the potato is just tender, about 8 minutes. Add beets and vinegar; return to a boil. Cover and continue cooking until the broth is deep red and the potato is very soft, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Step 2

Combine sour cream and horseradish in a small bowl. Serve the soup with a dollop of the horseradish sour cream and a sprinkle of parsley.
