I made this one up today and it came out great! Fresh garden collards fill in for the cabbage; beans and yeast fill in for the meat found in many more traditional recipes.

Recipe Ingredients for Vegan Borscht with Collards

200 grams beets
200 grams celery
200 grams carrots
200 grams potato
200 grams onion
200 grams parsnip
200 grams collards
100 grams whole wheat pasta
1/4 cup red beans
1/4 cup Red Star Nutritional Yeast
1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
1/4 cup fresh chopped rosemary
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper
5 cloves garlic
8 cups water

Recipe Directions for Vegan Borscht with Collards

  1. Cook the beans until almost tender.

  2. I used adzuki beans but the cc database didn't recognize it, so I wrote red beans in the recipe.

  3. Course chop all veggies except the collards which should be finely chopped.

  4. Add rest of ingredients except garlic into a large pot and simmer for about 45 minutes until tender.

  5. Remove from heat and add freshly minced garlic.

  6. The pasta can be any kind of your choosing. I used organic whole wheat penne for this.
