This is a vegetarian  version of traditional Ukrainian Borscht. The secret of a tasty borscht is cooking the vegetables to perfection with the right combination of spices. Because Beets and cabbage are loaded with healthy nutrients and rich in fiber, including them in your diet will support good health. This hearty soup is also diet friendly and will promote weight loss
