Fozelek (Hungarian Thick Soup)

I prepare fozelek quite often in the house as it is freaking simple to prepare yet so fulfilling and can be extra delish. Fozelek is a crossed between a soup and a stew. There are many kinds of them in Hungary, from potato, veggies, beans, and seeds.

We can have fozelek anytime, regardless hot sunny day, but more so in Winter 😀

Today’s fozelek is a mixed between veggies and ground beef, because, why not 😛

250 g ground beef, browned

Stir in:

1/2 large onion, diced
4 garlic, thinly sliced

Add in:

1 bag frozen veggies, rinse (300 g)
1 tin corn, drain

Pour in:

1 L broth + enough water

Season with:
2 tbsp each mushroom granules, Vegeta powder

Boil for 20 mins

Meanwhile mix:
2/3 flour + 1 tbsp sweet paprika powder + 150-200 ml water

Pour into pot to thicken soup

Serve immediately is the best 🙂
