There are many ways to make borscht. This recipe creates is a clear red broth to which you can add dumplings. Watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Vegetarian Polish Borscht Video.
I followed the recipe exactly as written. I watched the video several times. My soup came out without any flavor. I added some more salt and that did not work. I simmered it for an hour so the broth would reduce. The broth tasted like onion soup. I'm going to buy more beets to add to it. I used beets with the stalks and leaves on it. Is this "beetroot". - 20 Oct 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
