Leczo (lecho)...a great dish and uses of lots of veggies!

Post  Danni on 3/8/2012, 4:08 pm

This is of Hungarian origin but very popular here in Poland. I decided to make it for the first time yesterday and can't wait till I have my own veggies this summer!!

First you need a really big soup pot.

Prep work and ingredients:
Slice 6 big onions
Slice 8-12 mushrooms
Cut 1 1/2 kilos of Polish sausage into small chunks
6 different colored peppers and slice (my hubby says to skin them but that is a lot of work)
Skin 8 tomatoes then core and cut into chunks
Peel 2 zucchinis and cut into small chunks
Dice a head of garlic
3-4 T of sweet paprika
1T of spicy paprika (more if you like it spicier, I added 3T)
salt and pepper to taste

In a very large soup pot heat fat or oil. I use lard because it is natural and yummy!
Once hot, add onions, saute for 5-ish minutes till soft and slightly browned.
Then add mushrooms and sausage. Mix and saute for 5 minutes.
Add peppers, tomatoes and zucchini. Mix and cover then let cook on medium for a good 30 minutes, till the peppers are really soft and the tomatoes and zucchini have turned into the sauce.

Then add the garlic, paprika and salt and pepper. Let cook for another 20 minutes are so.

I then taste it and add more garlic, paprika or salt and pepper as needed.
Serve in a big bowl with chopped parsley on top!
Also you should let it reduce a lot, so that it is not so much soup but rather a thicker stew.
Enjoy!

I am usually one who likes to use a recipe the first time then taste and make it better at the end so do with the above as it tastes best to you!

Here is my finished product from yesterday. I wish we had more colored peppers available right now. I only had red yesterday, usually it is very colorful.
