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.
