I followed your directions, except added canned white northern beans with the vegetables, instead of the cannellini beans. (The dry beans probably would have been better if I had them.) We never had borscht before. It was pretty good, but I expect it is an acquired taste. We'll have plenty of opportunity to find out, as it made enough to last us for a couple of weeks. There are just 2 of us. Anyway, thanks for the recipe. It was fun trying something different. Mar. 14 update: I put some of this in freezer containers and saved. My husband and I happily did acquire a taste for it, and now we love it. Just had some for lunch today, and my hubby asked, is that all? There wasn't enough left for seconds. :) Have to increase the rating to 5 stars. Congratulations for a distinctly unique and very delicious recipe! Now I have another good use for all my rye berries.
