I thought this was interesting however my husband didn't care for it.
I think perhaps I would puree the beets. It could have been a texture thing.
Unique flavor! Reviewed for NA*ME tag/December.

we loved this!! dh was a bit leary about the eggs being sufficiently cooked but i added HOT broth to them & stirred gently until no raw whites were visible then added a ladleful of STUFF. Please DO take the time to make small dice of the cubed beef. ;) i had fabulous beets from the farmers market. Yes, it was a tedious mess peeling & grating them but in the end it was so worth it. This is a REALLY REALLY delicious soup!! Made for NA*ME Tag.
