paprika potatoes

European/Potato Night

I am Hungarian, and I love Hungarian food. It is important to teach my children what their heritage is and what it means. A big part of that is food. Hungarians are know for Attila the Hun and for food. I'd rather it be the latter. According to my dad, we trace our ancestry back 500 years of restaurateurs. Since I do not currently have a restaurant, I can at least impart the love of Hungarian food in my children. It seems to be working because this meal is one of their favorites, although an alternative of it, March of the Grenadiers (mashed, mixed with pasta, and baked), is more of a favorite.

This is, once more, a very easy and quick meal. It takes about 15 minutes by the stove, cooking the onions, and peeling and slicing the potatoes, and then about 30 minutes simmering on the stove. It is a classic Hungarian dish that also has the Chicken Paprikas as the more famous counterpart. This was one of my favorites growing up, and it is turning out to be a favorite of my progeny, too.


  1. Szia!
    Nagyon jó ötlet ez a blog, kívánok hozzá minél több kitartást, hogy még sokáig olvasgathassuk a tippjeiteket!:-)
    Na, és az még külön szuper, hogy magyar szerzője van!;-)

  2. Wow! I am impressed that you are viewing this from Hungary! I do not have a Hungarian keyboard, and I am not sure how to convert my keyboard to Hungarian (I will look into this), and I hope that you are able to read this. It is a real pleasure to read your words and I hope you will continue to read the blog. If you have any questions about veganism or raising children vegan-friendly, or any of the food here, I would be happy to help any way I can.

    Koszonom szepen!
