Preparation of mushroom hodgepodge:

Step 1: take the cabbage.

Sauerkraut gives the hodgepodge special acidity. Attention! If the cabbage, in your opinion, is too acidic, it must be washed under cold running water. This step is necessary in order not to spoil the whole dish, because too harsh (sour) shade of this ingredient can “interrupt” the taste of other components. We put the prepared cabbage in a pan, add vegetable oil, tomato, finely chopped onions, salt, peas, bay leaves, water (so that it is 6-7 cm higher than vegetables). Leave the first pan stewed over medium heat.

Step 2: boil the mushrooms.

In the second pan, in one liter of salted water, boil the mushrooms. If they are fresh - 10-15 minutes are enough, if pickled or salted - 5-7 minutes, dried mushrooms will take about 30 minutes.

Step 3: add the mushroom broth to the cabbage.

When the water in the first pan is almost boiled away, and the mushroom broth is boiled, they must be combined. Important! Initially, you should choose a pan of the appropriate size. We leave the dish cooked for another 30 minutes, and 10 minutes before cooking, add the olives and finely chopped pickles, sugar.

Step 4: decorate the mushroom hodgepodge.

When the mushroom hodgepodge, by its consistency, begins to resemble a thick soup, it can be considered ready. A dish decoration can be: sprigs of greens, sour cream, crackers and even small pickled mushrooms or cucumbers. It all depends on the mood and imagination of a particular hostess.

Step 5: serve the mushroom hodgepodge.

Serve the described hodgepodge better in medium-deep plates. In some cases, smoked sausages are served together with the dish. Enjoy your meal!
