Cold beetroot soup with sour cream


Author: Aušra

Date:

The summer is over, but we still can enjoy cold beetroot soup. I prepared it a few weeks ago, while we still had our own cucumbers and beetroots. I’ve never prepared this soup with sour cream, but it’s really good. So from now on I think I won’t by expensive sour milk that is made specially for this soup, but will buy cheaper and add some sour cream. Because it’s delicious too!

Cottage cheese and potatoes dumplings

At first I just wanted to make photo and upload it to Mano receptai.lt. But when my family tasted them, I understood that they are really good and they deserve to be posted here. I have tried to boil cottage cheese and potato dumplings without the recipe, bet they never tasted as good as these. I think the secret is good cottage cheese and potato proportions. So I really recommend to try this a little bit simplified version of dumplings.

Cottage cheese and boiled potato bake

Potatoes and cottage cheese – it’s always a great company. So why not to combine them in to a bake. It can be prepared within a few minutes. I found this recipe in Russian magazine about child-caring, but significantly changed by our observations: original recipe asks to slice the potatoes, but we prefer grated because it distributes better; original asks to pour more milk, we prefer the more eggs, and this bake comes out stronger. For us our experimentations came out super tasty. So, honestly, I urge you to try it too 😉

Beetroot soup with minced meat

Easy but substantial soup. Because of vinegar you can feel mild sourness, so you better pour vinegar not by milliliters but by your taste. And I can say one more thing – I’ve tasted delicious soup like this long time ago.

Potato salads with sour cream

I know that potatoes doesn’t sound very summery, but it’s quick and only that matters to me now. Just have to mention that I asked my hubby to boil potatoes and eggs while I was at work. 🙂

This is our new best breakfast. We baked it I think even four times. And understood one thing – it’s really good with tomato and sour cream sauce. Maybe it would be great with green salads too, but this combination we will try only in the spring.
