Cook Time:


1 pound smoked ham
4 potatoes cut in bite pieces
1 onion diced
1 carrot sliced in cilinders
1 cup dried split pea with lentil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 inch ginger, minced
1 cup cut kale
3 tablespoons of olive oil

I usually make this soup with split peas only, but for this recipe I mixed it with lentil. Both peas and lentil are high in fiber, they reduce risk of heart disease and stabilize blood sugar.

Rince peas and lentil and soak them in water for 2 hours, before cooking.

Welcome To My Blog!

Hi, my name is Olga.  I would like to welcome you to my site.

I created it first of all, to save my family’s recipes and then to share them with my friends and those who have tasted some Russian/Ukrainian food and liked it. But I also would like to introduce it to those who haven’t yet, but would like to.

I will try to keep my recipes simple, but there are few that might require more prep time or ingredients for preparation. You will also find some of my family’s favorite American recipes here and other international cuisines.

I thank you for visiting my site. I hope you will fall in love with Russian/Ukrainian food and will come back again.
