# 3 Day-By-Day – Traditional Thick Soup

Hungarian Yellow/Green Bean Thick Soup with Turkey Stew –  Sárgabab Főzelék Pulyka Pörkölttel

“Q” What makes Traditional Hungarian thick soup so unique?

“A” Hungarians make use of all the seasonal veggies  by focusing on fresh vegetables, and dairy products. Hungarians make heavy use of the spice, and it seems to make it’s way into almost every thick soup and dish they cook.

The Hungarians practically saying”green beans thick soup” insteed of saying yellow bean thick soup, and cook both of them. The “yellow beans” when fresh are more tender … melts like butter, very tasty, for lunch and supper a real main course with any side dish.

As said at previous traditional Hungarian cooking delights, should not read this with an empty stomach.

Green/Yellow Bean Thick Soup

Both served for 4 person – 30 mins preparing and cooking time 60mins.

Ingredients: 1 kg of green beans washed, the ends trimmed and cut into 2-3 cm pieces, 1 tbs flour (whole grain oatmeal gives it a fuller taste, but can be smooth refined wheat flour, 1 tbs butter, 1 tbs Hungarian sweet peppers, 5-6 cloves garlic finely chopped, a handful of  chopped parsley, 1 liter milk, salt, 1-2 tbs of 10% vinegar, 2 dl sour cream.

Cooking:  Fry the flour with the chopped garlic until golden brown, turn the heat low and mix in the Hungarian sweet red paprika powder,  turn the yellow or green beans in, and gradually add enough milk, stirring, to make the vegetables silky creamy. Almost at the end of cooking add the chopped parsely and cook formam little further. Also prefering to make it even more creamy add the 2 ml sour cream at the end of cooking. For the yellow beans more than 15 mins it is unnecessary to cook, so the beans remain a little crunchy. With the green beans need cca 20 mins, but also depending how weak, fresh they are.

Turkey breast Stew- Pulykamell Pörkölt

Ingredients: 80 dkg turkey breast fillet, 1 large onion, 2 tps red pepper powder, tps cummin, salt, Hungarian pepper powder.

Cooking: Cut the turkey breast into small cubes, the onion and the cummin as well. Heat oil to drizzle the onion, then on medium heat put the sweet or strong red pepper powder  as to taste, following the turkey breast fillet. Roast until the meat takes on a white color, finally add the spices.  Pour on water and mix well. Only add cold water to just cover the meat. May stir a couple of times and if the water evaporates whilst cooking add some water… not too much we … don’t want to make a light soup thing.
