Easy Vegan Borscht Recipe

Vegan Borscht

This recipe for easy vegan borscht is made with simple ingredients and is ready in under an hour. This recipe is delicious on its own, but it is even better when it’s served with a dollop of vegan sour cream or plain dairy-free yogurt. Fresh vegetables like beets, carrots and celery add flavor to the soup broth; so no premade soup stock is required to make this borscht. Simply add the ingredients and let it simmer.

The longer the soup simmers, the deeper red and more flavorful the broth becomes. I recommend cooking the soup for at least thirty minutes. If you have more time on your hands, I highly recommend letting the soup simmer for an hour or so. The flavor will be much deeper and you’ll be glad you waited.
