This Russian dish is one of the great chilled soups of the world. Enjoy it on a hot day with a garnish of diced cucumber and sour cream.
This was my first time to even cook a beet. It turned out great! I went exactly by the recipe and would not change a thing. - 09 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was easy and simple... I modified it by buying cooked beetroot in my Tesco produce section and then just softened the onions with the beef broth. Then I just blended it all in my blender. I also added cooked ground (minced) steak which i lined the bottom of my bowl with and poured the delicious hot pureed soup on top. The dollop of sour cream was lovely and i swirled it in each bowl before serving for presentation purposes. This is not only great chilled but also quite delicious hot... great recipe! - 01 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Made this for a party and got rave reviews. I loved that it is a very simple recipe so you can really taste the beets. The amount of red wine vinegar is perfect! - 18 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
