Borscht is commonly known as a Ukrainian beetroot soup and is well known for it’s wonderfully deep red colour – it’s a visual treat!

Easy beetroot soup recipe
- Large pan

- Sharp knife
- 840 g Beetroot we used vacuum packed no vinegar beetroot
- 1 Large onion
- 1 Litre vegetable stock
- 15 g Butter
- 2 tbsp Crème fraiche
- Finely chop the onion
- Roughly chop the beetroot – it's best do this on a surface that can't stain
- Prepare your stock
- Heat the butter in a pan and then gently fry the onions until they are soft
- Now add in the beetroot and stock and let it simmer for around 20 minutes
- It should be a wonderfully rich red colour now and then remove it from the heat
- Place it in the blender and give it a good blitz until you get the consistency that you prefer
- Place it back in the saucepan and warm it up again
- Serve in bowls and garnish with crème fraiche and chopped chives (we chop it with scissors)
