Polish Borscht Soup Recipe

January 15, 2023 By: Bunnie's Kitchen

Polish Borscht ( barszcz) soup that will keep you warm in the cold winter months. It is Eastern European sour soup that is made with beets. Can serve it hot or cold. This classic recipe is usually made on Christmas Eve. I cooked this on the stovetop, but can be made in crockpot for several hours on low. Wonderful source of hearty nutrients. There is other Russian and Ukranian versions of borscht stock. Optional to garnish with parsley and sour cream.
