The Borscht was even better after sitting for a couple of months! I did blend it a bit to break up the potatoes since they can get mealy in the freezer.
I think Borscht is an overlooked soup. I add white beans to mine so it is a one pot meal. There's nothing better than a hot bowl of soup when you have a cold. I was surprised by how many of you have never had Borscht when I post the recipe in December! What are you waiting for? It's so good and super cheap. You can use canned beets in a pinch, but I love using fresh ones because you can use the beet greens as well.
Have you ever had Baby Beet Greens? I think those might be my very favorite greens ever! One dish I remember so fondly was also another sick dish made with Adzuki beans, sweet potatoes and baby beet greens. Yum!
Raw Pho, w warming it up on the stove. I'd say this might just be the best sick food ever. Garlic, ginger, spice, veggies. You can feel your circulation improving while you eat.
I love using food as medicine.
What are your favorite sick foods?
