Helen's Hungarian Heritage Recipes TM
VERY INTERESTING MYSTERY SOLVED:"LESCO" is NOT the basis for anything except LESCO - don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Some would have you believe that you can prepare Lesco and then you can prepare any Hungarian dish. Not True!
Hungarians are genius when it comes to preparing Gulyás (goulash) or Paprikás Dishes. And, each dish has it's own unique flavour combination - more paprika, sour cream, etc. LESCO", on its own is healthy, satisfying and bursting with flavour and goodness. The fresh red peppers and tomatoes give the dish it's vibrant lively colouring, NOT the red paprika!
3 Hungarian White peppers
½ tsp pepper
1 14 oz can stewed tomatoes (whole)
1 - 2 Hot Hungarian Banana Peppers
¼ tsp sweet paprika
¼ cup tomato paste
3 red peppers
⅛ tsp hot paprika or
1 tsp salt
1 green bell peppers
1 tsp Hot Chili Pepper Flakes
3 med onions (cut in 1/2 moons)
2 tbsp oil or bacon fat
Serving Suggestion: Serve with fluffy white rice or fresh Hungarian white bread. You can jazz it up or play it down. However you use, it you will find it to be very complimentary with a lot of dishes.
1 tsp salt
1 1/3 cup water
1 tbsp butter/oil (combo)
1/2 cup water
Hint: If sausage is too dry – stew beforehand in ½ cup water in a shallow saucepan for 10-15 minutes before adding to peppers. (Add both stewing liquid and sausage to the peppers).
Serving Suggestion: Serve with fresh Hungarian bread or alongside white rice.
