chopped green celery, dill, parsley, coriander, green

as for me, i never use for this soup - fat ( i use oil). 
i never use flour! 
i do not like beef and pork ( especially with bones). (i use chicken!!!). 
i use vinegar to taste. 
vinegar - very important for this soup! (add it after potatoes is boiled. 
and before you add beet to broth. 
 
soup will be beautiful: red with a lot greenery.
