How to Make Hungarian Potato Soup


  1. Lightly fry the onion and parsley in the oil in a big pot.
    When onion is see through add the diced veggies and stir.
  2. When the onion starts to have a bit of colour add the paprika and toast it for a sec or two till it is fragrant.
    Add salt.
  3. Add enough water to it to just cover the veggies. Bring to the boil and then simmer slowly till veggies are cooked.
  4. When veggies are cooked crack all 4 eggs in to the soup, whole, one at a time. (like you would poach the egg) and gently simmer with lid on without stirring for a few mins for the egg to cook.
  5. Serve with crusty bread and a dollop of sour cream if you want! It is nice to actually over cook the potato just slightly as it gives the soup a sandy potato bottom... yum!!
