Baby Friendly Borscht Soup

I can finally scratch Borscht/Borsch off my bucket list! Lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I was 17 years old, I was blessed enough to meet a Russian family who introduced me to the wonderful world of Russian food… I was instantly obsessed!

Russian food launched my exploration of food and culture from around the world! The world literally became a different place for me.
I’m not sure why it took me all these years to finally make Borscht/Borsch Soup, but it was definitely worth the wait! ๐Ÿ’–โ˜บ๐Ÿ’–

๐Ÿƒ 3 Medium to Large Beets
๐Ÿƒ 1 Medium to Large Red Onion
๐Ÿƒ 1 Medium to Large White Onion
๐Ÿƒ 3 Large Carrots

๐Ÿƒ 1/3 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
๐Ÿƒ 1 Minced Garlic (Optional)
๐Ÿƒ White Pepper to taste
๐Ÿƒ Sea Salt to taste
๐Ÿƒ 6 Cups of Spring Water
๐Ÿƒ 1 Cup of Veggie Broth
๐Ÿƒ I used all Organic Veggies

๐Ÿ‚Peel all the Veggies
๐Ÿ‚Cut Veggies into bite size pieces
๐Ÿ‚Steam Veggies until soft
๐Ÿ‚Save the Broth
๐Ÿ‚Transfer 1/3 Veggies & 3/4 Cup of Broth to Food Processor in Batches
๐Ÿ‚Blend until kinda mushy
๐Ÿ‚Transfer the mush back to the pot with the remaining Broth, stir.

๐ŸŒฑ Add Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
๐ŸŒฑ Add Sea Salt to taste
๐ŸŒฑ Add White Pepper to taste
๐ŸŒฑ Add Paprika to taste
๐ŸŒฑ Stir, and serve Hot or Chilled

๐ŸŒฑ Garnish with Green Onions, Vegan Yogurt, Vegan Sour Cream or anything you like!
Mmmm… Yummy Yummy Baby! ๐Ÿ˜‹

๐Ÿ‘ถ I must note that this recipe is the Vegan & toddler/baby friendly recipe. There are so many variations of this awesome soup! More traditional recipes grate, dice and simmer the veggies along with adding savory cabbage and more garlic…
I know that whatever version you make, it will make a great comfort food dish! Mmmmm I’m gonna have some more for breakfast!
Happy Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ
