How Do You Make Authentic Borscht? 

Technically, authentic borscht may have beef or chicken in it. However, you can absolutely use vegetable stock and plant-based "dairy" products to make it the vegan way.

Authentic borscht is usually the kind that's not pureed, so try it chunky to make it European-style. You can always add a little flour or cornstarch if you'd like it a little thicker.
