Prep the borscht ingredients
- Using a peeler or sharp knife, peel the beets; using the large holes of a box grater, coarsely grate the beets.
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
- Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. Set aside the zest for the fritters. [Zest both lemons and juice 1 lemon. Save the remaining zested lemon for another use.]
Cook the borscht
Add the cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is tender and the beets are fork-tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the borscht cooks, prepare the zucchini–white bean fritters.
Make the fritters
- Rinse the white beans.
- Trim the ends from the zucchini; using the large holes of a box grater, coarsely grate the zucchini. Using a clean kitchen towel, lightly squeeze the zucchini to remove excess moisture.
Cook the fritters
While the fritters cook, prepare the garnishes.
Prep the garnishes
