Refreshing and light, but filling you up, full of vegetables and goodness – perfect for summertime. You can go totally vegetarian, or add some chopped up cold beef/pork/chicken or even luncheon meat.
These soups are done without boiling, other liquids substitute for broth. Usually a big amount is made (as almost in all Russian recipes) so it can last for a few days.
Available recipes: Cold borscht, Okroshka.
