What do you think is the most popular dish on hot summer days? Ice cream? No, they did not guess, because this is ordinary okroshka, which will both refresh and saturate during the hot season.
The recipes of this native Russian dish are a million and each of us cooks it with the addition of our favorite ingredients, but the classic okroshka is always created with sausage, potatoes, radishes, cucumbers and chicken eggs.
Agree, this option of a tasty cold soup is already rather outdated, so if you want to surprise your relatives or friends by preparing summer okroshka, then change the composition of the products for the first dish to a more exclusive one.
For example, instead of sausage, get crab sticks, replace potatoes with canned corn, etc. In the end, you get okroshka with seafood. You have not tried this? So go ahead - let's cook it with you together!
For 1 serving of refreshing soup, you will need:
- 1 tbsp. cold kvass;
- 1 boiled chicken egg;
- 1 cucumber;
- 2-3 pcs. radishes;
- 2-3 pcs. crab sticks;
- 1 tbsp. canned corn;
- salt to taste;
- greens to taste.
Okroshka is prepared quickly and simply - even a schoolboy can cook it. To make this soup, first boil the chicken egg and cool it so that all the products are ready.
Wash the cucumber and radish, cut the tails. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and then into slices and place in a plate.
After them, cut radishes in the same way. When choosing a root vegetable on the market or in a supermarket, make sure that it does not turn out to be hollow inside, or even better - try a radish when buying, because with insufficient watering it becomes very bitter and then the okroshka you cooked will lose its taste.
Add canned corn to the sliced ingredients in the plate.
Cut the crab sticks into slices, and the boiled egg into small cubes and put into the plate.
Rinse the greens that you have in stock and chop it by adding to the container along with the salt. Green onions and dill or parsley sound best in okroshka.
Fill all cut with fresh cold carbonated kvass and mix gently. If desired, kvass can be diluted for calories 1 tsp. mayonnaise or sour cream - it turns out very tasty! Okroshka with seafood is ready - taste and enjoy your meal!
