Groats, wild berries, nuts, mushrooms, greens, and caught fish are what guerrilla groups were content with. But even from this they often managed to cook something special. The recipe for one of their frequent dishes can be safely included in your diet.

Ingredients :

Buckwheat - 1 cup

Rice - 1 cup

Wheat groats - 1 cup

Onion - 2 pieces

Forest mushrooms - 300 grams

Sunflower oil - 40 ml

Butter - 100 grams

Salt to taste

Black pepper (ground) to taste


Rinse the cereals. Chop the onion and cut the mushrooms into large pieces. Boil the mushrooms for 3 minutes.

Heat sunflower oil in a pan. Fry onion and mushrooms on it. Salt, add pepper.

Pour 0.6 L of water into a deep container. Add salt. Boil the liquid. Add all the cereals. When the water boils again, turn down the heat and simply boil until it boils completely.

Add butter. Close the pan tightly. Leave the porridge for 10 minutes. Then add the fried onions and mushrooms. Shuffle. Leave on for a couple more minutes. Serve.

Such a dish in Russia, Belarus and other countries of the USSR is treated free of charge on all military holidays. It is cooked on fire in huge field cauldrons and distributed to everyone. You can always buy it in places where there are military museum territories. Such as the Stalin Line in Belarus.

You are very welcome to visit it! :)

It is customary to add canned stew to this porridge. And fry with it. As an option, buckwheat porridge with canned stew, mushrooms and onions is a favorite “military” dish. As a vegan, I can only eat buckwheat with onions and mushrooms :)
