куриный суп с гречкой
Written in English as kurinyy sup s grechkoy, which translates to chicken soup with buckwheat, hopefully.
I paired this with the Piroshki but altered the soup since there is meat in the Piroshki. I omitted the chicken, and it is still quite good. Even though there are mushrooms - I typically do not like them - they mixed well into the soup.

This is a pretty heavy soup and doesn’t really need anything else to go with it besides a salad. It is nice as a dinner during a cold, quiet evening. Or a noisy one, this makes a lot of soup!
