Hungarian Peas (Borsófőzelék)

Hungarian Peas (Borsófőzelék) is not only one of the most popular Hungarian vegetable stews, but is super easy to make. It’s the perfect comfort food, without the European guilt too.

It’s a little different, but I know you’re going to love it. This is a great winters night in meal while you’re eating in front of the TV or just a nice quick meal for the whole family.

Remembering the smells that came out of my grandmother & aunties kitchen, this dish puts out the same smells and brings back childhood memories.

And even though my grandmother never made this I know she would be looking down giving me the thumbs up. This is simple European comfort food at it’s best.
