Delicious cold beetroot. Step by step recipe
- To prepare beetroot, it is necessary to boil water in advance and cool it.
- It is not necessary to cook beetroot on the water; you can use kefir, broth, kvass or beetroot broth.
- You also need to boil vegetables (potatoes and beets) and hard-boiled eggs in advance.
- Tip. To save time, I use a microwave to cook vegetables. I put the washed vegetables in a bag or simply wrap them in cling film, make a few holes with a knife and turn on the microwave: potatoes are cooked for seven minutes, beets - fifteen minutes. Cooking time depends on the capacity of your microwave oven, each one has a different one, so check the readiness.
- Peel boiled beets, grate or cut with a knife.
- The cooled boiled water must be brought to taste, add salt, sugar and citric acid.
- Pour the grated beets into a pot of water.
- Prepare the potatoes: they need to be peeled and cut into small cubes. Add chopped potatoes to the beetroot pan.
- Boiled eggs are peeled and cut into small cubes. Add the chopped eggs to the vegetables in the pan.
- Prepare the radish: it needs to be washed, cut off the ends and cut into small cubes. Put the chopped radish to the ingredients in the pan.
- We turn to the cucumbers: they need to be washed, cut off the ends and cut into small cubes. If desired, peel can be cut from cucumbers. Put the chopped cucumber in the pan.
- Then we wash the tomato and cut it into small cubes. Add the chopped tomato to the pan to all the ingredients.
- If desired, boiled sausage or meat can be added. This will make the beetroot more satisfying. We also cut the sausage or meat into small cubes.
- If you want to spice up the dish, then add spices: garlic, black or red ground pepper, paprika. Add one kind of spices or combine several, make to your taste.
- Tip. When all the ingredients are added, be sure to try the beetroot and add spices to taste.
