This recipe is not difficult to make, is hearty and is very healthy, but it is very much on the plain side. The fresh dill makes the dish. I think I might have liked better the other version of borscht posted on the Williams-Sonoma site if I had made that one since it included a horseradish condiment. As it was, I stirred a little horseradish into my soup for flavoring. This helped somewhat. I won't be making this version again.
