Borscht is a delicious, hearty beet soup popular in Eastern Europe, with origins most commonly traced to Ukraine. The dish typically contains beets and other vegetables cooked in broth and often topped with sour cream, though there are many variations served across the globe. Polish borscht, for example, is often a thin soup with juicy dumplings. Some versions are thicker in consistency, filled with hearty vegetables and stewed meat. Home Cooking Collective makes it vegetarian, subbing mushroom broth for beef broth, and features root vegetables, beets, and cabbage. They top the borscht with creamy skyr and a garnish of dill for a bright finish. Serve on its own, or with pierogi for a satisfying weeknight dinner.
