Summer Borch

Dinner / Summer / Organic / Vegan / Kosher / Parve / Sugar Free

Beets soup

This soup could be served warm or cold on a hot summer day. It is delicious either way. This is a modified version of Russian cold Borscht. I use baby kale instead of beet’s leaves. Organic beets are so sweet; soup does not require any additional sugar. It is a nice option for an occasional menu. It is EASY to make. You can keep it refrigerated for several days. Freshly cut greens add fresh vibrant energy to every serving. A slice of boiled egg could be a nice protein addition to the soup if desired.


  • 2 – 3 loose organic beets
  • 2 – 3 cups organic baby kale or green kale
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 lemon
  • 9 cups of water
  • radish / cucumber /dill / parsley / scallion

Cooking Instructions

Bake whole unpeeled beets covered in foil for 1 hour. Remove skin from cooked beets. Grind beets. Place them in a cooking pot, add water, sea salt and heat it up. Let it cook for 10 minutes. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and sliced kale. Taste for salt and lemon.Turn borscht of and let it cool off.
