Traditional Russian Borscht (Vegan)

Gali’s mum makes the best vegan Borscht in the world! You can argue with us how much you like but it’s so true.

Every time we have this delicious vegan borscht soup in her house, we crave it more and more. Matt says that no one can make Borscht soup as good as the mother-in-law. Not sure what she does, as she never really follows a recipe and the soup is kind of different every time, but one thing that is consistent is that her plant-based borscht soup is always spicy, garlicky, super beetrooty and full of flavour.
