Solianka – amazing Russian soup

With our friends on Saturday we organised themed cooking party – this time’s theme the Russia. With a cookbook in hands and my intuition we made a large pot of Solianka – thick, healthy soup with fish, sour cucumbers and olives. Sounds strange? Maybe it’s an eccentric combination but at the same time just delicious! Honest!

18 oz (500 g) fresh cod
3 potatoes
2 carrots
1 leek
piece of celery root
1 parsley root
1 onion
35-50 fl oz (1-1,5 l) vegetable bullion
lemon juice of ½ lemon
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp tomato puree
2 tbsp wheat flour
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp capers
2 tbsp olives
9 oz (250 g) sour cucumbers
salt (soy sauce), pepper
to serve with dill, sour cream

Peel and dice vegetables. Heat up the oil in a pot, sauté onion and remaining vegetables (with potatoes). Add the flour, the vegetables should be covered with it, add bay leaves, tomato puree and hot bullion. Boil for a while until vegetables get soft. Add chopped cod, boil for 10 min. After another 5 min. add lemon juice, salt and pepper (the soup should have equal salt and sour taste). Serve with 1 tbsp sour cream and chopped dill.
