Borscht

Posted in Recipes, Soups

This recipe came about when I was on a $5 Dollar a Day challenge.

I had some potatoes, cabbage and beets, and a limited number of spices. In the end it turned out to be a delicious and warming soup! I think it was the unusual combination of pizza seasoning and ginger that did it.

Serve it with cooked grains, or like I did, with corn tortillas and diced avocado.
