Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a large soup kettle put the carrots, onions, garlic and beets and cover with water, cover and simmer gently 20 minutes.
  • To the vegetables in the kettle, add the whey, butter, tomatoes, pepper, potato, cabbage, lemon juice, bay leaf and parsley and simmer until all the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.
  • While the “Borscht” is simmering, mix together the yogurt, cucumber and dill.
  • Ladle the hot borscht into bowls and heap several tablespoons of the yogurt mixture in the center of each serving. Serve at once accompanied by the bread and butter.
  • This soup is equally good chilled, then pureed in a blender with the yogurt topping blended in.

    This is a dynamite, as in explosively good, recipe for Borscht. I'll chop the potatoes very small and skip the blender, thanks. I prefer this soup cold and even then I like it to have some texture.Won't change the taste but will change the experience. Thanks for the copied post. RJ

    This is very different from my recipe. It sounds good and much less fattening than mine. Thanks for the post!

    What would be a substitute for whey in this recipe? The only way I would know how to make whey is to make homemade cottage cheese.

    This is a great Borscht recipe (better for the belly!). I love this stuff with a hearty crusty bread (not so good for the belly!) LOL HIGH 5!

    I've been making borscht since I was 10 years old! Your recipe is different, and I really like the whey, cucumber and yogurt here! Can't wait to try this version, thanks!
