This is a Russian-style soup with simple, understated flavours. It was the first dish I tried at Borsch and probably kick-started my love of dill, which I hadn’t appreciated nearly enough until then.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g minced chicken
1 onion, finely diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 small pinch allspice
1 egg
1 tablespoon breadcrumbs, fresh or dried
1 tablespoon vegetable oil or butter
100g carrot, peeled and cut into 5 mm dice
200g potato, peeled and cut into 5 mm dice
1 litre Polish soup stock
or 1 litre chicken stock
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix together the chicken and two-thirds of the onion. Add the salt, allspice, egg and breadcrumbs, using your hands to make sure the mixture is well combined. Refrigerate until needed.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or stockpot over medium heat. Add the remaining onion and the carrot and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables have softened, about 10 minutes. Add the potato and stock and increase the heat to high. As the soup warms, form the meatballs and add them. Lena, who makes this soup, puts the mixture into a piping bag with a 1 cm round nozzle and squeezes it straight into the soup, slicing it off every 1.5 cm to form little tubes. Alternatively, you can take a scant teaspoon of the mixture at a time and roll it into little balls and drop them into the soup.
  3. When the soup starts to simmer, reduce the heat to medium. You should have added all the chicken by this stage. Cook for a further 10–15 minutes, or until the carrot and potato have softened. Add the dill and season with salt, to taste.
  4. This soup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and will freeze for up to 3 months.
