Watch the potatoes
I made this the other day and it is ever so yummy. My only problem was that while I was waiting for that nice red color to seep out of the beets, the potatoes overcooked and started turning to mush. Just something to be careful about. Anyway, I added carrots and omitted the sour cream, as I like it best as a kind of vegetable soup sans embellishment. Probably wouldn't pass for borscht anywhere in Europe/Russia, but it made a yummy veggie soup for me.
Pros: Healthy, quick, easy, cheap
