This is SUPER good! It has a very rich and subtle flavor. It is filling and very satisfying. It will definitely become a favorite: would be good any time of year, since I enjoyed it both hot and cold. I used cole slaw mix as the cabbage. I thought it added a very nice crunchy texture, but it would be good without it if you prefer a smooth, creamy texture. I added a can of white beans and a couple of carrots, inspired by some of the other veggie borscht recipes I saw. I used a red onion, because that was what I had. I had a little trouble finding fresh dill, so I almost used dried, but then I tried one more place, and I'm glad I did, because that fresh herby flavor was wonderful. I used vegan sour cream (Cream Tang by the Play Food company). My husband looked at this soup suspiciously, but he tried and liked it. It was pretty easy to make (but I'm totally gonna buy one of those immersion blenders so I can make this during the school year!) and there was a ton leftover, which I will probably freeze. Definitely made way more than 4 servings (probably more like 12).

This was good. Nice and easy since I just used the immersion blender right in the crock pot. I skipped the cabbage as my husband doesn't like it. I didn't have sour cream so I used cottage cheese though I think the sour cream would be better.

This was an easy and tasty dinner. I reduced the size, guestimated the ingredient amounts and made a few substitutions to accomodate my pantry (white wine vinegar for red, plain yogurt for sour cream, dried dill for fresh) and it still came together nicely. I added a splash more vinegar at the end - to give it a bit more of a sour kick, but that's just my preference. A nice dark rye-type bread would be the perfect compliment for this. Between the crockpot and the immersion blender, this was a breeze for a weeknight dinner, with leftovers to reheat for lunch.
