Sour cabbage & stew

- Comments Off on Sour cabbage & stew -

My mum makes the most delicious sour cabbage & stew that is why mine tastes similar to hers. This can be an excellent dish in between the holidays since it is does not take too long to make it, and it is a bit like kocsonya, we can eat it for days and it does last for days. It is on top of all, an excellent immune strengthener therefore I only wash it through once before cooking so that all the good beneficial vitamins stay in there.

Winter lentil soup

- Comments Off on Winter lentil soup -

This soup is an excellent comfort food after the Christmas period, from more of its advantages just to mention its enter cleaning effects. If we want to focus on cleaning our body, then just leave the meat out. There are several types of lentils. there is e.g. beluga lentils, that is small and dark colored, puy lentil, that is also smaller you can buy it in different colors. This time, since the holidays, I made my soup from gourmet mountain lentils, this also a smaller type. This soup is an excellent choice also for New Year’s Eve. I am sure I will make it again then since I could not go to bed on the 1st without eating lentils.

Thin flank filled and beetroot salad

- Comments Off on Thin flank filled and beetroot salad -

This is a type of dish that we can have our butcher help with the bigger part. The thin flank needs to have a sack opened for the filling. This is what our butcher will do for us. The rest of the steps are real simple. We can fill the meat with anything now I am going to show you my variation. The salad is easy and it goes well with this dish and it makes it also colorful. Therefore we can make it festive dish on the Christmas table.

Preparing kocsonya

- Comments Off on Preparing kocsonya -

Hungarian traditional winter aspic dish. I like to prepare the kocsonya always a few days before Christmas, because if we are Hungary in the morning or in the evening, we have something in the house to eat and we can stay lazy during the Xmas holidays. I am also happy to serve with a plate of kocsonya, which they are pleased with. I experience that a lot of women (housewives) would not start making kocsonya, but trust me it is worth it, since it is not at all difficult to make. To tell the truth it only takes long to make. You need one of your Saturdays for that. But in the meanwhile we can have something else to do such as packing presents, baking a cake or just stay lazy on the couch.
