Hi, I've taken some recipes from the list but I've never posted anything, so I decided I will. This is a very old recipe for borsch ( a type of soup originated in Russia). Thre are many ways of making it..but since many people on this list are vegan or vegetarian, i'll give you the recipe w/o meat. This is a summer borsch that is supposed to be eaten cold. It's delicious and it's supposed to be a red color because of the beets in it.

and as far as I know, there is nothing containing much fat..if there is any at all. So try it and tell me what you think : Boil water and put in potatoes & beets. Mix chopped spinach, scallions, and parsley in a big bowl. After beets are cooked, take them out. Take potatoes out. As soon as potatoes & beets are taken out, put in parsley, scallions & spinach. Let them cook over medium heat. Meanwhile, cut potatoes in small pieces and put them in the pot (with scallions, etc.) Bring to a boil (about 5minutes) and add salt, sugar, and vegeta according to taste. Shred the beets and add them inside the pot. Add lemon juice. Turn off heat and put into the fridge.

*Serve cold w/ sour cream

Optional: Serve w/ cut up hard-boiled egg, cucumber and dill.
