What is Borscht Soup?

Borscht is a traditional Eastern European soup that is popular in many Slavic countries, particularly Ukraine and Poland. It is typically made with red beets as a primary ingredient, which gives it a vibrant red color. Other common ingredients include cabbage, potatoes, carrots, onions, and sometimes meat or bone broth. Borscht can be served hot or cold and is often garnished with sour cream and fresh dill. At Soups From Me To You, our Head Chef Liz, who is of Polish and Ukrainian descent, brings her expertise to create an authentic and delicious Borscht from her mother’s recipe!

What can I serve with Borscht Soup?

Borscht pairs well with a variety of side dishes. Traditional accompaniments include hearty rye bread, pumpernickel bread, or garlic bread for dipping. Sour cream is a classic topping that adds richness and tanginess to the soup. Additionally, boiled or mashed potatoes can be served alongside the soup to make it a more substantial meal. For a fresh contrast, serve a simple salad with leafy greens, cucumbers, and tomatoes dressed with a light vinaigrette. Borscht also complements other Eastern European dishes such as pierogi or pelmeni.

Is Borscht Soup served hot or cold?

Borscht can be served either hot or cold, depending on personal preference and regional variations. Both versions offer unique flavour profiles and are enjoyed by Borscht enthusiasts worldwide.

How do you pronounce "Borscht"?

Borscht is pronounced as “bawr-sht” or “bor-sht,” with the emphasis on the first syllable. The “r” is typically pronounced softly, and the “t” is often silent or barely pronounced. The exact pronunciation may vary slightly depending on regional accents or dialects.

Does Borscht Soup have any health benefits?

Borscht offers several potential health benefits, primarily due to its nutrient-rich ingredients. This soup is typically packed with vegetables like beets, cabbage, carrots, and onions, which are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Beets, in particular, are known for their high levels of dietary fiber, potassium, and folate, while cabbage provides vitamin C and vitamin K. Borscht can be low in calories and fat and is associated with various health benefits, including improved digestion, heart health, and overall well-being.

When is Borscht Soup served?

It’s a classic dish that is traditionally served on Christmas Eve, but can be eaten at any time of year.
