Introduction

It's tipical summer soup from East area of Poland and Lithuania. Orginally this dish is based on veal stock and is served with slices of cooked veal and crayfish. My proposition is much easier but also delicious and refreshing.

  • Additional Information

    Some people add also chopped radish but as for me it isn't necessary. The flavour should be a bland of sweetness and sour. If the harmony of this tastes isn't well balanced add lemon juice or teaspoon of sugar.
