Russian Cold Vegetable Soup – Kefir Okroshka

The folks I cook for have been requesting cold soup. This one, sourced from this month’s Vegetarian Times,   was delightful and very refreshing.

When it’s this hot ( expected 103 today ) I personally don’t feel particularly hungry but one still needs to eat a bit of something.   Give this cold soup a try.

3 C Plain Kefir, 1/2 C green onion, 3 T coursely chopped dill, 1/2 boiling potato diced, 2 medium carrots diced, 1/2 english cucumber seeded and diced, 1 C radishes – thinly sliced, 1 C arugula – coursely chopped.

Stir together kefir, green onion and dill, season w/ salt and pepper if you wish. Chill overnight if you can.  steam potatoes and carrots, 7 – 8 minutes ( tender but firm). cool.

add cucumbers, radishes and arugula to potato mixture.  pour kefir mixture over and stir to combine,

best served with dark rye or pumpernickel bread.
