Here are the side dishes eaten with the borstch, as I had some for several meals.
Recipe of borstch for gourmande

They are potato dumplings. It’s very easy. Mashed boiled potato, egg white, flour, nutmeg, pepper. They are steamed 2 minutes in micro-wave…

…then dipped in egg yolk and reheated under the broiler. Topped with negi leeks.

But the best is they are stuffed with cheese (that wannabe-mozzarella is just great for that kind of recipe).
