More About This Recipe
This warm winter soup has a surprising kick. A perfect pick me up on cold evenings.
Good news: This spicy borscht soup will not only warm your soul, but if you go full force with the spices, you’ll be running at deadly speeds for your closest glass of milk.
This soup, at its base, is peasant food. It costs almost nothing to make and will feed a crowd. It can include proteins like beef, but I like to keep it veggie-packed. Plus it's insanely easy to make. This is, no joke, the hardest part of this recipe is chopping the vegetables. This will probably take around 20 minutes if you are a slow chopper, but after this the soup cooks itself!
Now let’s talk spices. Since this is a spicy soup, I went big on the spices. I used dried arbol chiles but those might be kind of hard to find, so I wrote red pepper flakes into the recipe – which will add some nice base heat. Now, if you want to get a little crazy, find yourself a dried habanero pepper and toss that into the mix. Totally optional, but it’ll elevate the spicy levels substantially.
Serve the soup with some thick Yoplait Greek yogurt and top it with a few sprigs of fresh dill. This will keep you warm all winter.
