The exotic appearance cold soup is coloured in a rose colour with marinated or boiled beetroot. It is believed that cold beetroot soup has been started to be eaten in Lithuania when there was no time to cook food. Liquid cold beetroot soup was made for mowers: vegetables - for vitamins, sour milk - to cool down, and water for thirst. For this reason, cold beetroot soup is an especially favourite spring and summer dish of Lithuanians. Served with cooked or fried potatoes.
