Hi everybody!
I thought (and you confirmed) Russian cuisine may be interesting for you. So, I decided to write few posts, and this one is the first.

(It’s my first tutorial, and first try to write a recipe in English. Please, correct all my mistakes!)

We will cook a “Shakhtyorsky” soup. This is not Russian but USSR cuisine. This dish has a very interesting history: in 50s in Siberia a secret underground military facility was building; it was very cold and frosty, so kitchener have to cook very nourishing, heating and cheap dish for builders (cause the facility was underground they were in jest  called “colliers” - “shakhtyor” in Russian). And kitchener invent this soup. We like it! Smiley

You need:
Onion – 1 large (or half of a giant one Smiley )
Carrot – 1 large
Potatoes – 500-700gr, as you wish
Half-smoked sausage (like Pepperoni) – 200-300gr
Vegetable oil (sunflower for original recipe, but I prefer olive)
Buckwheat – 3-4Tbsp (It’s the most important! I know it’s hard to find it in your countries. If there is no Russian food shop near your house, you can use corn grits, but I recommend to try to find a buckwheat).
Salt, pepper, laurel,  green onion, dill, parsley, garlic – I used dried ones.

So, let’s begin.
Peel and cut the carrot. You can use the grater, but I like this variant more.

Cut the onion.

Fry onion and carrot with oil and all spices (except the salt). This mixture called “pojarka” Smiley

Until your pojarka is frying, peel potatoes and cut it.

Boil 3-3,5 litres of water. Add salt, potatoes and buckwheat there and cook it about 15 minutes. If you use corn grits, cook it about 20-25 minutes, and only then add potatoes and cook 15 minutes else. Cut the sausage until it is cooking.

Add sausage, pojarka and laurel to the casserole and cook soup in 2-3 minutes.

That’s all! Now turn on Beatles – Back To USSR and enjoy your “Shakhtyorsky” soup. I hope you will like it Smiley

Please, write if you cook it Smiley

For some reason (seeing as I'm also Russian), I've never tried this-- maybe because I was born just as the USSR was splitting up-- but it looks yummy! I miss Russian soups. Sad
Also, I want to point out that it's "recipe" rather than "receipt," mainly because that's how I spelled it for my first couple of years in the US -- it came as a huge surprise for me that is was not spelled like that. Tongue A receipt (I eventually found out) is actually the кассовый чек.

Thank you for all your comments! I'm very glad you like my post! Smiley

LordVader, i don't know is laurel easy to find in galaxy far far away Smiley , in Russia you can buy it in every grocery Smiley

IndigoCharm, I think you never tried this soup because it is known only in one little secret town where I come from Smiley And where are you from? Do you live in Russia now?
And thank you to fix my stupid mistake Grin

Even though I live in the United States, born and bred, my family has a rich Russian heritage. I love to cook Russian food and all the dinner traditions. I can't wait to make this soup. I think I can find or grow the ingredients.
