by | May 15, 2020 | Soups

If you have already checked the Hungarian wax bean soup off your to-do list and you seek for new impressions wax beans can provide, this hearty dish will widen your horizons. This colorful wax bean soup is delicious for any time of the year.

It contains a lot of vegetables, shredded noodles and smoked meat. If you can’t get wax beans, feel free to add green beans. You may use any kind of smoked boneless pork, but make sure that the meat is boiled cause the cooking time of this soup is 30-40 minutes that isn’t enough to make a raw meat tender.

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.
