Yesterday's frigid temperature inspired me to meet Plum at the school gate with hot soup in hand - an afternoon snack. She ate it all by the rapid happy spoonful. Proud mommy moment! So begins a week of nourishing soup recipes - a break from the weather in the form of a cup or bowl. We start with Borscht. This velvet puree radiates both warmth and goodness - grown up baby food at its best. Technically Borscht can be many things - from a beefy stew to a vegan broth. We split the difference - using a strong stock and seasoning with fresh horseradish because not only is the root KR's favorite - it clears the sinuses like no one's business.
