Mushroom Soup

Requirements for a 5 litres pot:
- 1 Big Onion
- 9 Average Potatoes
- 250-300g of mushrooms*
*Mostly we are using Portabello or dried white mushrooms, and you can put a bit more if you want :)
If the mushrooms are dried, then I place them in a seperate pot, cover them with a small amount of water, and when the water starts boiling - I wash them out (since mostly they are full of sand and dirt), then I cut them and add to the soap.

- 5 Average pickled cucumbers.
- 1 cup of cucumbers' brine
- About 100-150g of vermicelli or spagetti (Which you can break into 2-3 pieces)
- 5 Cloves of garlic
- 1 Teaspoon of Hawaij
- 1 Teaspoon of Oregano (Optional)
- 4-5 Bay leaves
- Small bundle of dill
- 2-3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil


Heat the pot and pour the olive oil in, then saute the onion (Slice the onion into dices)

then add half of the mushrooms to saute with the onion (Half of the mushrooms I saute, and the other half I add with the potatoes).

Add 1 Teaspoon of Hawaij and Oregano (Optional) into the pot, saute it all together for about 30 seconds, then pour about 2 litres of water in the pot.

Then add the potatoes (Slice them into small cubes), and when the potatoes are ready, add the pickled cucumbers (which also should be sliced into small cubes), and 1 cup of cucumbers' brine.

When it will boil for 5 minutes, add the vermicelli (or spagetti), thinly sliced dill and garlic.

Once it's boiling - mix it, add the Bay leaves, turn the fire off and let it stay for 15 minutes.

As always, Bon appetite :)
