Cabbage and Yellow Beet Borscht | Lunch

Yellow beets provide a new look to this satisfying borscht (although it can be

made with red beets instead if you prefer). To cut down on prep time, you can

shred, rather than chop, the vegetables. This will change the texture of the soup,

but some people prefer it this way.

Both the beets and the potato will begin to darken if not submerged in liquid

right away. So, as soon as you cut or shred them, add them to the slow cooker

along with the broth. This can be soy-free if you use a soy-free vegan sour

cream.
