Russian Cold Beet Soup

9.09.2014 Posted in Red Cooking No Comments

Dear 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!
