Krupnik, literally translated as "barley soup", is a common dish in Poland, being basically made from barley. The soup recipe can be made vegetarian and lower calorie by replacing turkey or chicken stock with vegetable stock. The ingredients used by the locals to cook this dish are: mushrooms, chicken or turkey, celery, butter or margarine, carrot, potatoes, parsley, fresh dill, sour cream (optional) and salt and pepper to taste.
Preparation is simple, as barley is mixed with meat or vegetable stock in a large pot, brought to boil and simmered until all stock is absorbed; butter is added piece by piece, stirring constantly. Vegetables are boiled for about 20 min, then barley is also added and cooked till tender; it is seasoned with salt and pepper till achieving the desired taste. Chopped parsley is added just at the very end.
It is served hot, sprinkled with freshly chopped dill, and a dollop of sour cream, if wanted.
