Vegetarian borscht!!

Trying to reduce my meat intake I have started cooking some vegetarian dishes. Mainly soups so far. The potato soup and the vegetable soups were great but the Borscht!! now that was really something..

I placed some butter in a heavy pot, melted it down and added chopped leeks, I dropped in some shredded carrots and chopped celery. Sauteed those while I ran the peeled beets through the food processor. Put the beets in with the other veggies and poured in organic vegetable stock, salt, pepper, a little Tony's cajun seasoning, a couple tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, a little soul food seasoning a little fresh basil. Brought it up to a boil and let it simmer for 2 hours.

Served with a dollop of sour cream..wow, fantastic! It's the first time I made borscht but it won't be the last!!!

Sorry, what you made may had beets, but that's No Borscht. Nothing personal.

There are as many ways to make borscht as there are cooks... maybe it's not how YOU or your neighbors make it, Charlie.
nothing personal.

I will agree about this part, but there are still basic things that go into borscht making. For that to be borscht.

Listen you can call it whatever you want, in all the truth it doesn't matter, and I should have not started with this.

A side note whenever somebody calles their version of Borscht authentic, that is a clear sign to stay away from such a recipe.

Name doesn't matter, what matters is the taste.

Gosh, I tried to appologies, ok in my own, not very obvious way, but I did.

What advise, you like what you made. You do not need my advise. What I make is my version of Ukranian borscht, definitely not authentic. My recipe is in Ukranian recipe thread. Here is the link:
