Beetroot soup, otherwise known as borscht is a traditional eastern European dish. It has spread all across the world and comes in hundreds of variations. Modern borscht is better thought of as a hodgepodge of recipes that fit under one label. That’s one of the strengths of borscht; you can tweak any beet soup recipe to fit your personal palette, so you won’t have to worry about your kids not enjoying it. It makes a great vegetarian dish. The thickness of the beet is an excellent replacement for the texture of meat. Use it to give your veggie friendly guests a unique experience.Do not forget to store some Beetroot Soup in a water bottle from Vaya to sip through the day.

Health Benefits 

Borscht has a wealth of health benefits. Beets are not only delicious vegetables, they’re also packed to the brim, with nutrients and vitamins. They are a rich source of vitamin C and can help boost immune system effectiveness. They also have the power to combat diseases like scurvy and improve skin health. Beets are also an amazing source of betaine, an important component that promotes heart health. Betaine lowers homocysteine levels in the body; homocysteine weakens blood vessels which increases your chance of suffering a stroke or heart attack. Beets can also boost the metabolism and act as an aphrodisiac.
