I'd peel the beets first- peels can be bitter and make the soup bitter. And I agree with those who said they'd leave out zucchini & corn. Summer vegetables. I like adding garlic. Haven't done that before, with borscht.

It must be yummy.

Beets are a powerfood? Thank you! I love them!

Doesn't sound quite like borscht, but I'd be willing to try it.

Two weeks ago when I made this and took the pics, I enjoyed this soup very much.

As I said: "This is my vegan version with just a few adjustments to the ingredient list." It is much like what my mother made as her Ukrainian friend taught her.

The main difference is the addition of one medium corn on the cob so with all the other veg it is very little corn but it seems to make it more filling with no need for bread, crackers, rice cakes or buns.
This particular pot served 6 big bowls.

I agree that the zucchini's and corn are not true beet soup ingredients. The rest sounds good, why so much garlic. Again with any soup recipe, adjust to your own and family's tastes.

This is really tasty and warming soup, thanks for the recipe!!

Well, it's too late to start cooking now - but Yum! Just the thought of it, makes me want to make it....

I've never seen or heard of adding corn before but it seems like it would make an interesting addition.

12:38PM PST on Nov 11, 2011

Call it whatever you like, it's nothing more than a vegetables soup. I love herbs but can't stand dill...... And I never add corn to any "serious" food, it's mostly starch and loses the taste in the soup. I like corn very much when it's corn soup and typically Brazilian corn recipes, Italian polenta and so on....

Haha, that kitten knows how to use an iPad better than I do!

My cat totally ignores stuff like this! No fun at all!
