I love the idea of adding pickle juice! Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Knorr-Cube-Bouillon-Vegetable-count-x/dp/B000SRLJH8/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1549668691&sr=8-3&keywords=vegetable%2Bbullion&th=1 Making it for the 2nd time in two weeks – and I never do that. Thanks for another great recipe, Angela! There are a lot of borscht recipes that don’t use garlic – including it is just my preference. :), OK, thanks Angela. Going into my recipes. I’ve been eating a ton of beets lately in juices and salads but I crave cooked beets and this looks like the perfect recipe. Thanks Susan! Over medium heat, sauté the onion for about 3 to 5 minutes, stirring once or twice. Thanks Emily! It was a fantastic soup! Thanks again! I think it would be fine, but you’d have to keep an eye on it. This will be next on my list. Then – because the bags are made of organic cotton – I can just throw them in the washing machine with the rest of my clothes to clean them occasionally. Your email address will not be published. This feels actually good when you comment back. You can certainly omit them! I have to tell you that, i’m really very pleased to read about you and your blog. Love the produce bag idea. Super tasty, I’ve made this several times now :), I grew up eating this soup with my mum as she loved it and now I cook it for my housemates who bug me to make it weekly !!! A big thank-you to my Aunt Elizabeth for inspiring this soup. I have an awesome (non-vegan) borscht that I do, but always looking for new vegan recipes for myself and my cooking club. I think this would be delicious served cold during the summer. I have even converted my beets hating mother into eating this! And no protein at all? Thanks for sharing! My son-in-law loves beets and I’m visiting them next weekend. Hi Angela, I love your recipes and my grown kids and their partners love them too :-) The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Walnut, Avocado & Pear Salad 1st May 2014 The Walnut, Avocado & Pear Salad with Marinated Portobello Caps & Red Onion (Page 103, The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Over 100 Vegan Recipes to Glow from the Inside Out) is a nice, hearty salad, but has too many components and thereâs a bit of disconnect between the marinated portobello and the rest of the salad. I added a couple bay leaves and some caraway seeds to give it more of the borscht flavour. We adore it too…it’s one of my fave ways to enjoy beets actually! Coat the bottom of a large pot with olive oil and place it over medium heat. Wouldn’t change anything about this recipe yum yum yum. I just came off of a 7 day fast and this is a perfect heart healthy, muscle supporting, keep the weight off meal for the next few nights! Stoked. I can’t wait to look at your other recipes. Yay! Made this yesterday. Made this and it’s fabulous! Best to you and your family in 2017. Fingers crossed that my 3 1/2 year old daughter will like this as well! I am a huge fan of soups like that I mean the chunky ones I have a plan to make it next weekend hugs:*. ;), This is really an Delicious Soup!! Very tasty – served hot and lumpy, also tried blended and refrigerated. The soup looks amazing too! 10/10 Never would’ve thought of combining beets w marinara. I used low sodium vegetable broth and results were very tasty! I think it will be delicious! and just put them in a grocery bag (also cloth) together. You are an incredible inspiration for other vegan bloggers. You should post a recipe for one! If you have one or both of my cookbooks, there’s also my Metabolism-Revving Spicy Cabbage Soup (Oh She Glows Every Day, p. 139), Creamy Thai Carrot Sweet Potato Soup (Oh She Glows Every Day, p. 141), and Soul-Soothing African Peanut Stew (The Oh She Glows Cookbook, p. 129). So sexist, to my mind, but doesn’t change the fact that borscht is very important.
