Ukrainian Mushroom Soup
This rich and flavorful Ukrainian Mushroom Soup is made with sautéed mushrooms, onions, carrots, woodsy herbs, potatoes, and vegetable broth. A generous splash of half-and-half adds richness without the need for heavy cream. It’s cozy and delicious and pairs so well with a crusty baguette on the side to dunk in.
To make this soup, start by sautéing the onions and carrots in a non-stick pan. Transfer the cooked vegetables to a plate and add the sliced mushrooms to the same pan. Cook until the mushrooms start to brown. In the meantime, bring the vegetable broth to a boil and add in the potatoes. Cook for 10 minutes, then add in the sautéed vegetables, ¾ of mushrooms, and thyme. Season with salt and black pepper. Cook until the potatoes are tender. Stir in half-and-half, and bring the soup to a boil. Add in the minced garlic and remove the soup from the heat. Use a blender to purée the soup until smooth and creamy. Serve in bowls topped with the reserved sautéed mushrooms, cracked black pepper, and a sprinkle of fresh thyme if you wish.
