Delicate Red Borscht with Beans

by Editorial Staff

I think this is not quite a classic borscht recipe. But that’s how I do it! The taste of borscht is very delicate. Since the recipe uses neither tomatoes, nor tomato paste, nor lemon juice, the borscht turns out to be sweetish, which is especially good for those who cannot eat sour.
