Mushroom stew

by | Feb 26, 2021 | Vegetable dishes

We Hungarians can make stew from almost anything, mushroom is no exception. Packed with a ton of essential vitamins and minerals, mushrooms make for an excellent addition to your diet, adding flavor to many different recipes. In Hungary mushroom stew is one of the most popular way to eat fungi.

Mushroom stew can be made from wild or cultivated mushrooms, in Hungary white and brown button mushrooms, or oyster mushrooms are generally used for it. Our mushroom stew is thickened – not surprisingly – with sour cream, which makes the stew silky and savory.

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.
