Mushroom and Potato Soup from Russia…

Yummy and for the tummy!

Mushroom and Potato SoupSoup is a mainstay in Russia and therefore, there is every kind of soup possible made by Russians. If the ingredients are safe to eat, as in fresh, they can be made into a soup and in Russia soup is the main course of a meal in most cases. It does not matter if you make a soup from salt cucumbers or fish, soup is the best and most delightful Russian food available…

This is a soup that is easy to make

Ingredients:
5 tablespoons butter or margarine…
2 whole carrots, diced and or sliced and or whatever…
6 cups chicken broth either real or powdered mix…
2 teaspoons fresh dill weed… (I like to cook fresh parsley also into the soup.)
2 teaspoons salt only if the broth is not salty enough… (Some instant cube broth is very salty!)
Pinch of ground black pepper and or your taste…
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and diced…
1 pound fresh and or canned mushrooms, sliced and diced and whatever…
1 cup real cream from milk…
1/4 cup all-purpose sifted flour…

Directions:
1. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Mix in carrots, and cook 5 minutes. Pour in broth. Season with fresh dill, salt?, pepper?, and mix in the potatoes, cover with a lid, and cook 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender but firm still…

2. Melt the remaining butter in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the mushrooms a few minutes, until piping hot. Stir into the soup (butter and mushrooms,) that is on very low heat… (Do not burn!)

3. In a small bowl, mix the cream and flour until smooth. Stir into the soup to thicken. Keep the saucepan on low heat and stir constantly for about 2 to 5 minutes. If it thickens quickly, then you heat less time. I also use an instant potato mix to thicken with and you can still add the cream to increase the richness…

This is the perfect soup for the whole family and if you desire you may add onion, garlic and even cheese to this soup, to make the perfect all around dinner at your household…
