Recipe by Nina Capaccio
"Super easy and absolutely great version of the longer and original recipe for this soup that my grandmother brought from Russia. On a hot summer day, a bowl of this soup is an energizing lift. Add a piece of of rye or pumpernickel bread served on the side to complete the Russian experience."

very nice recipe! I had both beets and buttermilk in my fridge, and wondered what to do with them both. searched for both terms and found this recipe. It was yummy and easy! I used fresh beets. washed and trimmed them up, cut them into chunks and boiled/steamed them in water. I blended some of the beets up using a hand blender. Part of the reason why it might have been so tasty was because I used a combination of full-fat buttermilk and full-fat greek yogurt (what I had in the fridge).
Grew up with this hot weather treat. We never waited for it to chill... Just make as described in 5 minutes and then add a tray of ice cubes (kid's love the ice cubes) stir and serve immediately! Don't be shocked that it looks like pepto bismol...lol
