Spring Beet soup (Polish Botwina)

Spring Beet soup (Polish Botwina)

StarStarStarStarHalf star

There are hundreds versions of this very Polish soup. Here you have an original proposition of mine. I used to cook it on the base of my favorite duck and chicken stock. The cream is a must to create wonderful pink color. Optionally you may add a quarter or a half of hard boiled egg to your bowl. By the way, I change my recipe sometimes, for instance by adding dried California prunes instead of sugar, or by adding some white vinegar instead of lemon juice.

I have this frequently in Greece and here in the U.S., but as I have said, I view it as a 'deli' item. Krinos Foods has a 'gyros kit' that is sold in the frozen food section of some supermarkets.
