Zikki's Vegetarian Borscht
Borscht is a magic sweet-sour beet based soup from Ukraine. Each region in Ukraine has its own variation on the soup. In Ukrainian culture the soup symbolizes familial strength, as all these various pieces (i.e garden vegetables) come together to transcend each other and create something delicious and perfectly in tune. When I make borscht with Zikki, we laugh because her recipe is always evolving. Truth be it (and her reasoning be it), that the borscht changes with the season. And what is most imperative? The quality of your produce. Because it is a simple soup built on simple flavors, we must source the ingridents with pride, to simmer a bold and unique soup!
