Recipe: Russian Okroshka soup


OKROSHKA

10 radishes
1 cucumber

chervil), finely chopped
4 teaspoons horseradish
1 litre Brod Original Rye kvas, chilled

METHOD
Chop eggs and all vegetables into medium dice.

Combine and divide between 4 serving bowls.

Add sliced roast beef, herbs and horseradish.

When ready to serve, pour chilled kvas over the top.
