  • 1 medium red beetroot
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • A handful of spring onion
  • A bunch of fresh dill
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • Some salt
  • A pinch of lemon acid
  • 800ml of buttermilk
  • 200-400ml of cooled boiled water
  • some sour cream
  • 6 medium potatoes


1. Chop spring onions, chop dill, chop cucumber into small cubes. Mix all together with salt and release the flavour. Add grated beetroot. Peel the eggs.

2. Cut the eggs into half and quarters and cut them small. Then add buttermilk and sour cream in the pot. If you like more liquid soup, add more cooled boiled water. Then add a pinch of salt.

3. Peel the potatoes and cut them in quarters and boil them. While they are boiling, add a pinch of salt. If the potatoes are soft, then pour out the water that is left.

4. Then put the potatoes on a plate and pour your delicious soup and don’t forget to add two pinches of dill.

Enjoy the delicious meal! 🙂
