Step by step method

  • Step 1

    First of all, chop the peeled and washed potatoes into small cubes. Bring water to a boil, salt and add potatoes.

  • Step 2

    We chop the peeled beets into strips and send them to the pan. When the beets are fried, pour lemon juice into it, add tomato, salt, pepper, simmer for a few more minutes. Onion cut into small cubes.

  • Step 3

    We send it to a separate pan, sauté until golden brown. We clean the carrots, cut them thinly and fry with onions. Transfer the roast to the boiling broth.

  • Step 4

    Finely chop the cabbage, put in a saucepan. Cook for about 7 minutes over low heat. Add canned beans and fried beets, cook for about 10 more minutes.

  • Step 5

    We remove the borscht from the fire and be sure to let it brew for a quarter of an hour under the lid. Then pour into bowls and serve. For dressing, you can use low-fat sour cream.

Tips & variations

  • Vegetarian borscht can be cooked on a broth made from dried mushrooms. Soak them in cold water for several hours, then boil them in the resulting infusion. Strain the broth and cook potatoes with cabbage on it, as indicated in the recipe, adding washed chopped mushrooms.

  • Sweet peppers can also be added to lean borscht. Cut it into thin strips, fry together with onions, carrots and beets, and then add to the broth.

  • Herbs, spices and herbs added at the end of cooking will enhance the taste and aroma of vegetarian borscht.

  • Add a little sugar, a little chopped garlic and mustard to the dish. Then the dish will become a real masterpiece.

  • Red beets for borscht can be pre-boiled in a peel or baked in foil, or stewed. It is not recommended to put raw beets in a saucepan with borscht, because. if cooked for more than an hour, almost all of the bright color will go out of it.

  • It is up to the chef to decide whether borscht will be thick or liquid. But a real vegetarian borscht is only thick, rich and with a rich amount of ingredients.
