A fabulous, traditional, hearty, lentil and vegetable Borscht with classic Ukrainian flavours. Served on this occasion, with a traditional Ukrainian dense rich rye bread.
And they go deliciously well together, they really do. (The considered opinion of my taste-testers! 🙂 )
Here in the UK it remains unseasonably chilly, and thick warming soups such as this are just the ticket. A simple rustic recipe, that requires no frills or fancy trimmings just a lot of chopping …ha…. and a few herbs and spices.
Once the chopping’s done, put it all together and just sit back and wait….
The bread requires little effort, just time and warmth to prove…. twice.
