ŠALTIBARŠČIAI
(cold beetroot soup)

You will experience the real taste of Lithuania cuisine if you taste this easy-to-cook soup, especially popular in Lithuania – „šaltibarčiai“ (cold beetroot soup, pink soup)! The soup has a shockingly bright pink colour due to the natural beetroot juice and an incredibly fresh taste due to the most important ingredient in the cold soup – kephir, recognized by nutritionists as one of the healthiest products in the world. 

Carlo Petrini, an Italian founder and leader of the famous Slow Food movement, has called Lithuanian cold beetroot soup „the world‘s most aesthetic cold soup“.
