Beetroot is not everyone’s cup of tea and we get that. There are no beets in this borscht recipe, but this is still a very traditional Ukrainian borscht. Full of tomato and cabbage flavor this borscht is a treat for those who don’t love beets but still crave some traditional borscht soup.
The kit is packaged into a beautiful collectible tin with traditional Ukrainian floral design on the lid.

Stove Top Directions
Combine borscht soup mix, broth and chicken in a soup pot. Bring to a boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer, covered, until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through, around 20-30 minutes. Optional: when borscht is done, remove the pot from heat and let stand for 30 minutes before serving.
In a crockpot combine borscht soup mix with suggested ingredients. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 hours until the vegetables are tender and chicken (if you added any) is cooked through.
Serve warm, topped with sour cream or plain greek yogurt. Sprinkle with chopped fresh dill, chives or parsley to add flavor and texture.
