Cold Beet SoupDear Reader,

Let me tell you that after a  long grey and rainy Summer, we are finally having some good weather here in Paris.

So to celebrate the Summer I decided to make the Cold Beet Russian Soup.  

Russian cuisine is delicious but can be rather time-consuming. It also  demands a lot of different ingredients as well as time to make it. For this reason it is often prepared in large quantities to be consumed for 4 or 5 days in a row which can also get tiring.

This easy-to-make recipe of the Cold Beet Soup, which is sooo agreeable during the hot summer months, makes a difference.

The secret is to use the bottled beet soup which is often available in : large supermarkets, Russian / Eastern European Food stores / Bio shops.

Ingredients for 4 people:

2 Bottles of beet soup / 4 Boiled eggs / 1 Cucumber / 4-6 Radish / Chives and dill to taste / Crème Fraîche

To Make it:

Chop cucumbers, radish, as well as cooked and peeled hard-boiled eggs, mince chives and dill.

Put a handful of each product into a plate

Pour over the beet soup, add 1 tbsp of Crème Fraîche, mix and serve.

Enjoy it! And let me know how you liked it!
