Yushka is a traditional Ukrainian pottage. Earlier 'yushka' was a name for meat and fish broths that were basis for the majority of liquid dishes, in particular for ukha. Later, however, potatoes and other vegetables, pasta, beans, mushrooms and various cereals became yushka's components.
Yushka is cooked differently in different regions of Ukraine and new ingredients are constantly added to it. Thus, there are Poltava yushka (with dumplings), Zaporizhian yushka (with salo), Kherson yushka (with salmon) and so on.
Yushka is a first course traditionally served with sour cream sprinkled with herbs.
The green borsht is a very popular dish in Ukraine. It was nicknamed the Spring borsht because of abundance of herbs and vegetables used as ingredients. During summer months, this borsht made with water is served cooled, in the winter months it is cooked with meat stock. Its name “the green borsht” is literal because the soup has green colour.
Mostly the main ingredient of the green borsht is a sorrel, which gives it a bright green colour. Nevertheless, the other herbs as parsley, dill and bay leaf are also added. One might use any meat broths either chicken, or pork. However the pork stock can be too greasy for borsht because it is considered to be a light dish.
It is peculiar that the sorrel and other herbs can be substituted by stinging nettle. So the dish will have inimitable taste and smell. Traditionally the green borsht is served first seasoned with sour cream and a half of a hard-boiled egg.
