MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 21, 2013

My family loves this recipe! I like to make a huge batch of this soup using my homegrown veggies and then freeze it in pint containers so we can enjoy it throughout the year. Since my family prefers a thicker consistency, I omit the cans of beef broth and just add bouillon to the water. Yum!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 3, 2010

This simple sounding recipe is sooo good! Everyone raves about it, including die-hard eastern European borscht snobs.(You know who you are.)The only change I make is that I use vegetarian beef flavoured cubes + water to equal the amount of beef broth.I've used this recipe for years.Thank you so much .
