This Sorrel Soup (Green Borscht) is another one of our delicious, authentically  Russian soup, that is full of everything good and nothing bad. Packed with vitamins and nutrients, this broth-like soup is filled with a handful of sorrel leaves, a few potatoes, boiled eggs, onion and garlic. I like mine best served with a dollop of sour cream on top and some crispy bread for dipping.

Sourish but still delicious thanks for this.

Anneliese Feigelson

Hate the egg taste in this I think I'll stick to the traditional cabbage soup instead.

Marlie Vandeloo

Garlic was kinda overwhelming in this I think only half a clove is neccessary if youre serving it only for yourself and make small portions.

Samira Weener

I liked this soup but sadly not as much as I enjoyed the Shchi, had more flavor and colors too.

Itzayana Xayasane

My kids are not a fan but I think it was good with some cheesy garlic bread on the side.

Maryjane Jedziniak

Fun soup to make and the green coloration is pretty too.

Mayah Onusko

Had no idea that Russians have meals without meat! I thought they were all pork lovers like the czech.

Gretchen Takaki

Goes amazingly well with smetana in the inside would recommend it.

Brynleigh Akutagawa

Was easy and barely anything needed to be done, took me less than 30 minutes to make this soup which is exactly how I like my appetizers, short simple and tasty.

Vegetarian soup is the best kinda soup for my family of none-meat eaters lol thanks for this.
