Do you want to know how pasta was served in Russia 200 several years in the past? Then you ought to surely check out this mushroom noodle soup.

This recipe is taken from the renowned cookbook by Elena Molokhovets. Even even though it has a record of 200 many years the recipe turned out amazingly modern pertaining to plating. At the very least in my interpretation it resembles ramen. It appeared quite basic but every little thing changed when I started to prepare dinner it. 

In point, it is a soup with mushrooms and do-it-yourself pasta (‘lapsha’ in Russian). Thinking about it much too simple I made a decision to make the noodles myself to make the dish far more genuine. In the conclude, I didn’t regret it for a one moment.

Though deciphering its short description I realized that it is not a ‘one pan’ brief dish. It was not obvious how to serve this soup so I had to improvise. In specific, you need to have to make a vegetable broth for noodles, boil the potatoes individually, boil dry mushrooms and insert all the substances to the noodles in the close. The rationale why I absolutely fell in love with this recipe is mainly because of the plating approach. All the elements shaped a well balanced symphony of preferences and textures.

I adopted the recipe diligently nonetheless, I created a appropriate twist. I assumed that fresh new mushrooms would go perfectly, also. I fried them with leek in butter and included them with the dried kinds when plating. It would be wonderful to use seasonal mushrooms like chanterelle or porcini. 

One more issue I needed to make is that in Russia, typically, noodle soup is extra probable manufactured with a hen broth. I cooked this recipe in both equally versions, vegetarian and chicken. Equally are astounding nevertheless, I choose the 1 with chicken since of its richness.
