A friend obtained some beets and we are therefore having Borscht Night on Sunday. Favorite recipes? Or recipes you think might go well with borscht? This is something I have never eaten, but I love beets.

You could make some placzki (potato pancakes), or you could make cabbage rolls with seitan. Placzki with a creamy mushroom topping are pretty great though.

I made borsch today as well as kartoflyanki (small potato balls). It was so good!

teddyplanet said golabki (stuffed cabbage rolls) with seitan, but I don't even use a meat sub when I make them. I use rice (or barley), mushrooms, and onions. Golabki is fun to make, but the cabbage part can be tricky.

I really love the beet, barley and black soybean soup from VwaV.

I eat mine with a dollop of "sour cream" and maybe some bread on the side. I don't have a recipe... beets, onion, cabbage, carrot, broth. Something acidic (like vinegar or tomato paste) towards the end. I'm sure someone else will recommend a good recipe, though.

Thanks for posting this thread. I don't like beets, but my husband is from a Ukrainian family and I think he misses Borscht. I'll have to try one of these recipes sometime...

Personally I love nalisniki...they're like a crepe but a bit thicker.

I love nalisniki stuffed with kraut and sauteed mushrooms. My MIL, who is polish, makes them like that for Christmas. So good.

We ended up using this borscht recipe my friend found on the internet: http://www.grouprecipes.com/18436/borsc ... -soup.html

Veganized by subbing earth balance for the butter and mimicreme for the real cream. We also subbed a huge amt of real dill for the dried, used about double the onion, and didn't mash the potatoes. It was really, really good and I recommend it.

I make haluski all the time. I use bowtie pasta rather than dumplings, though.

Ok - a little bit confusing but we have at least three kinds of beet borscht in Poland :)
1. clear beet soup served with croquet or naleĊ›niki with sauerkraut and mushrooms
2. "the real" borscht - based on prepared earlier beet kvass and then with beets and other ingredients
3. "Ukrainian" borscht - this with beans, green beans, tomatoes, carrots and other vegetables :).
