Mushroom Fry with Potato (Traditional Russian Recipe)

This easy mushroom recipe, that we simply called mushroom potato fry, is inspired by traditional cuisine of Eastern Europe. In Russia and Poland wild forest mushrooms are a big part of the most delicious dishes, and when in season, they are paired with anything you can imagine. They are fried, boiled, roasted, dried and even pickled. We are sharing one of the easiest way to cook mushrooms with you. Mushrooms are a true super food, and there are so many reasons why they should be a part of anyone’s diet, besides their amazing flavour. Nowadays most of us don’t have access to wild forests, and finding wild mushrooms in the market is a rare luck. For that reason we are presenting our mushroom recipe with champingons (also called button mushrooms). While their flavour is more mild, they still make an amazingly delicious appearance in this dish. The secret is just to pupt a little bit more of them.

Ingredients (2 portions):

  • 250 gr mushrooms (wild muhrooms are the best, but generally any mushrooms can be used in this recipe)
  • 400-500 gr potato
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp dry thyme or dill
  • salt and black pepper to taste


Step 1. Cut all the ingredients in the desired shape. Don’t cut the mushrooms too thin: during the cooking process they will shrink sigificantly, and you still want to feel their flavour. Chop the onion very finely.

Step 2. The secret of the flavour of this dish is frying every single ingredient separately, and then mixing them all together in one pan. First of all, fry the onnions until golden brown, add the garlic. Then, slightly fry the mushrooms. Don’t overcook the mushrooms.

Step 3. Now fry the potato. To make sure that they are cook yet crispy, cook them on a meidum heat first, covered with the lid. Then, increase the heat and fry them until they start to brown slightly.

Step 4. Mix all the ingredients on a pan, add spices and salt. That’s it, your easy mushroom potato fry is ready.
