The red Russian soup, We don’t even know why people write it in English with a T at the end, when in Russian you don’t write it or say it. Well, this is an adjusted recipe for Borsht. Since people on low carb diets cannot have potatoes, then we left them out. This still tastes really delicious. This recipe also uses reserved chicken, so it’s a lot faster to make.

And here are the Directions:

– First get all of your ingredients ready.

– Bring everything to a boil.
– Reduce heat and let cook for about 10 minutes.

We prefer to eat our Borsht with toasted sprouted bread, mayo or sour cream, and fresh onion slices (yep, just bite into them!)
– Reserved chicken: we set aside a day when we make chicken stock (a whole different recipe) after everything has cooked the right amount of time, we take all of the meat off the bones and reserve it for later meals.
