Favágó leves – Lumberjack’s soup

by | Jul 14, 2023 | Soups

Lumberjack’s soup (favágó leves) is a hearty meal containing pork, mushrooms, root vegetables, noodles and sour cream. I generally make this soup with nokedli, but pinched noodles can also be a good choice. Pinched noodles need to be cooked much longer than nokeldi, so you have to add the noodles to the soup together with the vegetables.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
