In this recipe, I will tell you how to make lentil borscht. I really like vegetable soups, including lean borscht.
I like the lentil version because it turns out to be more satisfying and more balanced in terms of the ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Lentils are best taken green, they are not so boiled.
