Vegetarian Borscht – Right 4 All Blood Types

Borscht is an Eastern European soup, celebrated for its nourishing qualities. A winter staple, it is made with root vegetables, abundant at that time of year, and is inexpensive to put together. The flavor of Borscht is comforting and tangy and is best served warm with a dollop of sour cream.
