How to make it

  • Wash vegetables.
  • Cook beets and carrots seperately. Cool. Save beet liquid.
  • Prep vegetables
  • Add chilled kvass and vegitables to beet liquid
  • Add sugar, lemon juice, vinegar or pickle juice, pepper, parsley and dill. You're aiming for a sweet and sour flavor. Adjust vinegar or pickle juice to achieve desired flavor. Salt as needed.
  • Chill
  • Just before serving add a dollop of sour cream and a soft boiled egg to each bowl.
  • Variations: for a meal rather than a side add cooked sliced sausage or diced ham. Even heartier, add diced cooked potatoes. Like it spicey? add dollop of horseradish and a spoonful of hot mustard to bring on the heat. For a creamy version add Kefir (yogurt) in place of beetroot liquid.

    Outstanding! Thanks for the info. I had no idea what it was, but we have some eastern european markets nearby and I was going to try to find out. I love Borsch and cant wait to try this one. Especially since beets are showing up in our local farmers market now.

    Great going! For people who don't know what "Kvass" is , It is very similar to rootbeer. Rootbeer can be used instead of Kvass for most things
