Borscht is a hearty soup that also looks extremely delicious. Originally from russia, it is known as red borscht because the beetroot used adds a deep red hue to the soup. You could add in all the vegetables you want, and simmer it until it is thick and gives out a wonderful aroma of cooked vegetables, onions, tomatoes and pepper. Serve it bubbling hot with curds and celery as garnish. Borscht tastes absolutely delicious with toasted whole wheat or multi-grain bread.
