Mushroom Borscht



1) Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat; add onion and cook until very golden, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Remove from pot; set aside.

2) Add mushrooms, garlic, cumin, allspice, and coriander to pot; add a pinch of salt. Cook until mushrooms have released their liquid, about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Continue to cook until liquid is almost evaporated, about 3 additional minutes.

3) Add wine to pot; bring to a boil and cook until evaporated, stirring and scraping constantly, about 2 minutes.

4) Add broth, beets, sauerkraut, and reserved onion to pot; bring to a boil over high heat. Lower to a simmer and cook, covered, until vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and seasonings to taste.

5) To serve, ladle soup into large bowls; garnish with parsley and sour cream.
