Buckwheat Soup

A very good, delicious and healthy soup - even my 2-year-old daughter always eats it very well. In addition, buckwheat contains a lot of trace elements, vitamins, fiber and protein - it is one of the best cereals. I learned to make soup from my grandmother and mother, buckwheat being the staple food in Ukraine and just as popular in Russia. I will continue to put recipes with buckwheat and the perfect method to boil it for the garnish.

If you do not have buckwheat you can use rice or pasta for this soup.

Then remove the breast from the water in which it boiled, rinse it well. Discard the water and wash the pan in which it boiled well (do the procedure for meat bought commercially, for meat grown in organic conditions is not necessary, just froth the soup well).

Now put the breast in the pan again with 2-3 liters of filtered water, when it starts to boil add the chopped onion of your choice and the bay leaf.
