Polish summer soup

3 Jul 2008 /  #1
Hi everyone! Last summer my hubby introduced me to a polish summer soup that I can`t recall the name right now. It`s made with barszcz, dill, plenty of garlic... it`s divine. I`d like to surprise him and make the zupa myself. Does anyone know the name or even better has the recipe?

I highly appreciate... and my hubby as well ;)

It's just summer Barszcz


300 gr peeled beetroots
500 ml water
1 vegetable stock cube
5 radishes
2 red spring onions
2 tbsp chives
1 tbsp parsley
juice from 0.5 lemon
350 ml Kefir (or natural yoghurt)
50 ml sourcream

Grate the beetroots and cook them in 5 deciliters of water, a stock cube and pepper. Cook until the beets are soft. Put aside the beets and the water, let cool, then transfer to the fridge to cool completely.

Chop the radishes, chives, onions and parsley. When the beetroots together with the beetroot water are cold, add the vegetables, lemon juice, sourcream and kefir. Salt and pepper the soup. Put it in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Serve the cold soup with boiled eggs.

Or you can make a cold fruit soup.

It`s a red soup. Actually it`s a pink soup. All I know is that my husband uses barszcz concentrate and fresh cream to make the base and then add garlic and all that. I have no idea how it`s called:(

Here's one for zupa jagodowa (Vegan, but you can replace sugar/cream if you want)

1 pound fresh strawberries or blueberries, cleaned well
11/4 cups water
3 Tablespoons vegan granulated sweetener
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup soy or rice coffee creamer or vanilla
soy or rice ice cream
Optional: 2 cups cooked, cooled noodles

Place fruit in a medium pot, add water and bring to a quick boil. Reduce heat, cover and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or until fruit is very soft.Place in blender and purée. Return purée to pot, add sugar, lemon juice and cream or ice cream. Stir and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Chill soup for at least 2 hours before serving. It is traditional to eat this soup on its own or served over cold noodles.


Actually it`s a pink soup

This is chłodnik:
