Beet Soup (Borscht)

Beet Soup has become one of my traditional holiday soups; this sour and delicious soup is very common in Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. My husband’s family who are from Poland introduced me to this soup during holidays as part of their traditional meals. Although, this soup is popular all year round. I love beets and use them to make salads but never thought of soups until I met my husband’s family.  Enjoy this Beet Soup recipe cold or hot!
