When it gets hot outside, the appetite disappears, but the stomach with its “trills” reminds us that it is time to eat, and then numerous cold soups come to the rescue. For variety, try to replace the most common okroshka in our summer menu with Lithuanian cold borscht on kefir. Homeworkers will appreciate your culinary exploits. After all, this borscht invigorates and refreshes no worse than okroshka. So, the decision has been made - we are preparing cold soup with kefir, the recipe for which is ridiculously simple. The ingredients will need a minimum, and time in the stuffy kitchen will have to spend quite a bit. To make cold yogurt on kefir, stock up on the following foods.
- pickled beets - 3 pieces;
- cucumbers (preferably young) - 3 pieces;
- cool eggs - 6 pcs.;
- greens (dill and onions) - 2 bunches;
- apple cider vinegar - 3 tablespoons;
- kefir 2-3% - liter;
- salt and seasoning individually to taste.
Cold borsch on kefir. Step by step recipe
- Root crops of medium-sized beets should be washed well under running water, cooked without cutting the tail, when the water boils, reduce heat, cook until soft, remove from pan, allow them to cool. Coarsely grate the beets, add vinegar, add a little salt, stir, let them marinate.
- Wash the cucumbers (if they have a hard skin, then peel), cut lengthwise into plates, and then cut across into small pieces.
- Finely chopped boiled eggs and proteins, add a little water to the yolks and grind to a paste.
- Finely chopped young washed greens of onions and parsley (coarse stems). Onion can still be ground with a spoon with the addition of salt.
- Fold everything in a deep stainless or enamel pan, pour in advance heavily chilled water with kefir, mix, try, if necessary, salt and add vinegar. Place the pan for an hour and a half in the refrigerator. Together with the beetroot, put on the table a whole boiled potato, sprinkled with chopped dill and sour cream.
For those who consider calories consumed, replace sour cream with low-fat yogurt without flavoring additives. If desired, thin circles of radish and chopped boiled potatoes can be added to the borsch. "I love to cook" wishes you bon appetit!
