Beautiful borscht

Sigh, the borscht didn't live up to its name. I've been cooking a lot out of the CSIRO Well-Being Diet Cookbook, and this is the first recipe which isn't drop-dead gorgeously delicious. It called for 1/2 cup lemon juice. Even as I squeezed, I thought 'no way'. I dutifully added it nonetheless - due to my deep need for order in the universe and in recipes - but regretted it upon tasting. Too tart. Only barely fixed by adding yogurt and extra virgin olive oil.
