I have been craving Hungarian zucchini stew for a while now and with the surprise veggie bag from Los Perros Urban farming containing all the ingredients, I took as a sign.

Now I haven’t cooked anything Hungarian since my Nana passed away a couple of years ago. For various reasons. However, one being that Hungarian dishes take a lot of time to make. Both my mum and my Nana used to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Especially Sunday dinners. Anyway, this Hungarian zucchini stew is traditionally served either as a side dish or a main dish served with potatoes. In fact, a lot of families were weekday vegetarians and had meat only during the weekend. Personally, I like to serve this with potatoes. Preferably, mashed potatoes.
