Borscht really is the prettiest soup!
I decided to use a mix of yellow and red beetroots which I suspect made the final product an even prettier pink colour. The boys loved it and I love, love loved the fact that it could be served cold! It served our family well for at least three nights as a simple starter that stopped my ever hungry twelve year old from munching on his own hand while I was getting dinner on the table.
The four beetroots I used were all enormous and so I must confess to sharing the last small portion with the chooks as we were all a bit borscht-ed out after eating it for three days running.
Now I am waiting to see if we get pink eggs! Wouldn't that be lovely...
