Two years ago Terje and I visited Krakow in Poland, and there we had Russian beetroot soup, borsjtsj, every day - for lunch, as a starter, a snack, or as the main dinner course.
I fell in love with the soup, and have always wanted to make it myself. But I have never done so.
Today I have two beetroots on the kitchen counter, and finally I plan to make borsjtsj.
Last night I started to search for recipes, but didn´t find any which suited me. My favorite one in Krakow was a thin, deep red soup, more like broth. All the recipes I found were for a thick, rich soup with a lot of other vegetables, many of them with meat as well. That´s not the soup I want.
Now I am asking you for help. Have you ever made borsjtsj yourself? Do you have a borsjtsj recipe? Can you share it with me and my readers? May be you even have photos?
I sent out this same request on my facebook profile last night, and got feedback right away. I think borsjtsj is a popular soup.
I plan to update my blog through the day, and hopefully I can invite you all to a borsjtsj feast tonight.
Now I am waiting to hear from you.........
