Funny to think that when i was a kid i didn't want to go anywhere near beets. For the longest time it was this thing that my family served around xmas time and that i didn't like. How things change! I buy beets regularly now to make pasta sauce to serve over salads to mix into smoothies and now to make Borscht!
Devine has been taking russian classes every week he comes back from his lesson with new words to teach me. Last week he not only returned with new words he also brought back a Borscht recipe from his teacher. Borscht just fits perfectly in the Grim Grains universe. It's bright red beautiful and delicious! This recipe was inspired by hers.
Borscht is traditionally served with sour cream so evidently i needed to have that be part of this recipe as well! A lot of vegan sour cream recipes have cashews so evidently i needed to have that be part of this recipe as well! A lot of vegan sour cream recipes have cashews because of my tree nut allergy i had to opt for something entirely different. Silken tofu does the job perfectly the mix of that plus lemon and apple cider vinegar gives a perfect sour taste. Sour cream recipe adapted from The blender girl.
