    westtextazzy's Note:

    This is soup and a sandwich, adult style. You won’t get a tastier version in a restaurant, and this is easy and inexpensive but full of flavor. The sweetness of the beets goes well with the smokiness of the cumin and the tang of the green chile. You can use any artisan bread you like for the sandwich. We like rye bread because it goes with the borscht. Feel free to experiment.

      Re-rating this as the missing instructions have been included and the recipe can now be seen in its entirety. It's really yummy! The soup is quite tasty, although I would leave out the rosemary next time, but the grilled cheese sandwich with the basil mayo is absolutely phenomenol!
