Description

When I was a kid, my Aunty Sylvia used to make the most incredible beetroot soup. She would either serve it hot with little meat balls or cold with some sour cream.

It was my father’s favorite soup. He would say he loved that it was both sweet and sour.

This version is perfect for the summertime, but you can also serve it warm with some boiled potatoes.
