Recipe Notes

  • Use your favorite mushrooms for this Ukrainian soup. Try a combination of wild mushrooms!

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a soup pot. Add the onion and carrot and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove to a plate.
  2. Add the remaining olive oil and the mushrooms to the same pot. Cook until they soften and begin to brown, about 6 minutes. Remove to another plate.
  3. Add the garlic to the pot and cook 30 seconds. Pour in the broth and bring to a boil. Add potatoes, reduce heat and cook about 10 minutes. 
  4. Add the carrots, onion and 3/4 of the mushrooms back to the pot along with the thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the half and half and bring to just a simmer. Remove from the heat. 
  6. Puree the soup with an immersion blender. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with the remaining mushrooms.

Mmm, so delicious. I love that we can keep Ukraine front and center in our minds, hearts, and even in our stomachs. We are with you.
Steve Koren
This soup was delicious and very simple to make. My wife and I used fresh shitake mushrooms from our local Asian market. We also used veggie broth and cashew cream to make it vegan. Only warning I'd give is that is gave us both crazy gas. Was worth it but we renamed it Ukrainian Fart Soup, affectionately.
Donna John
LOL! So happy ya'll enjoyed it ... farts and all! :-) Great idea for making it vegan!
Maureen Jones
My soup is very, very thick? Should I use broth to thin out?
Donna John
I would use broth or half and half.
Maureen Jones
What consistency should it be? Somewhere between broth and porridge I imagine.
Donna John
Not like porridge. Just a creamy broth consistency. Like potato soup.
Jen Knowles

I made this last night, and it was fantastic. I used whole milk instead of half and half and it was plenty thick and very hearty - and delicious. The only disappointing thing was that I was looking forward to having a bowl for lunch today, but we ate it all last night!
Elisa Schmitz
