Wash and chop the beets, peel the beetroots, cut into cubes. Put into pot, add half a glass of water and cook for approx. 10 minutes. Leave to cool. Mix with kefir and cream, add minced garlic, chives, dill and cucumbers cut into small cubes; add salt to taste; leave in a fridge for several hours. Serve with hard-boiled eggs.

If you prefer a more sour version, you can add a handful of fresh sorrel to the beets. In the classic cooled version you, add peeled crayfish necks or pieces of roast veal, chicken breast or arugula leaves.
