Once I tried a Lithuanian cold borscht with kefir from a friend and just fell in love with it! This borscht may well become a worthy alternative to our usual okroshka - the Russian version of cold borscht.
Basically, the Lithuanian version of cold borscht is not much different from its Russian counterpart. The main difference is that boiled beets are added to cold Lithuanian borscht and such borscht is filled with kefir.
And one more interesting aspect - boiled potatoes are not put into cold Lithuanian borscht, they are served with borscht as an addition and they eat a cold chill with boiled potatoes as a bite.
We will prepare all the products according to the list.
First of all, boil potatoes, beets and eggs. I usually boil beets and potatoes together in the same saucepan. Pour vegetables with cold water, let the water boil and cook until cooked. I check the readiness of the vegetables by piercing them with a knife, if the knife easily enters the vegetables, they are ready. Drain the water from the vegetables, let them cool completely and peel them.
To boil the eggs, boil water in a saucepan and carefully put the eggs in the water, cook hard-boiled eggs, 6-7 minutes. We drain the water from the eggs, cool them and remove the shell.
Cut the radish and fresh cucumber either into strips or quarters.
Place the vegetables in a bowl.
Cut the eggs into small cubes and transfer them to a bowl as well.
We rub the boiled beets on a coarse grater.
Put the beets in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
Finely chop the dill and green onions with a knife.
Put the herbs in a bowl.
Fill all the ingredients of Lithuanian cold borscht with kefir.
Important: kefir should not be very sour. Better to take fatter kefir.
Mix all the ingredients well with kefir. If the borsch is thick, add some cold boiled water. It's time to salt the borscht. Let it brew in the refrigerator for literally 20-30 minutes.
Pour cold borscht into portioned plates, decorate with quarters of a boiled egg and serve with slices of boiled potatoes and fresh bread.
Enjoy your meal!
