    Ukrainian borscht is different from Russian borsh. (I have 3/4 Ukrainian in me and a little bit of Russian makes up a portion of the other 1/4.) The Russian version is more of just a beet soup.

    This recipe seems similar to the borscht that I grew up with. There are a few differences, my dad would put barely into it, and also we aren't vegetarian so there was also some steak cubes in it. It's nice to find a vegetarian borscht recipe though, since my hubby is one.

    I'll have to try it out some time!

    Hey nice recipe. I live in Poland and I concur with you that Celery and Peppers can certainly be added to make it better. I made it myself this way and if you blend people never know what is there. :D What do russians know! :))

    awww. that is such a sweet compliment. i sincerely appreciate it. i came across a recipe along the lines of this many years ago, and just kept altering it to my own tastes. I actually do not even like green pepper but love the flavor it adds to this soup.

    This is a wonderful soup, very much like what my step Grandma would make on her meatless Friday suppers. Grandma Plaza was an awesome Polish cook and I loved her soups. They were the best.

    Right, which is why it is a 'twist on the traditional soup.' I dated a Ukrainian man and his family's recipe was spelled this way. Perhaps it's the difference between Russian and Ukrainian. The recipe is vegetarian, so it's not true to the traditional soup. I have to make up the complexity of the flavor loss from no meat somehow - which is why I chose to use celery and peppers. There are many variations of this soup out there, so bear with me.

    The soup sounds great, although I may alter the garnish a bit ;o)
