This time of the year the garden is full of fresh vegetables. I love to get a head start on canning the summer’s harvest so I don't get caught having to cook non-stop for weeks! This borscht has a yummy citrus twist, but the flavors are amazing together. I like to make this soup in larger batches and set some aside for quick lunches or dinners. I hope you enjoy!

Author Tarah Abram


  • 6 cups beets roughly chopped
  • 3 cups potatoes roughly chopped
  • 2 medium onions
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 limes
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • Himalayan salt to taste


  • In a large pot add the beets, potatoes, onion and garlic. Cover the veggies with water or a broth of your choice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 30-35 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  • Using your blender add batches of the soup and pulse. I do some smooth and then some chunky to create a nice texture. Pour back into the pot after you have blended each batch until you’re happy with the consistency.
  • Next add the juice of 3 limes, chopped parsley and Himalayan salt. Stir together and warm to desired temperature.
