Appetizing Original Hungarian Pea Pottage. Traditional Recipe of Zoldborsofozelek.

Things to know about Zoldborsofozelek Recipe

“Zöldborsófőzelék,” many people call it a stew, but to be more exact, it’s a pottage. It can be served as a main or as a side dish. In Hungarian, people call it “főzelék.” It’s one of the most essential and characteristic traditional dishes of the Hungarian kitchen. It can be cooked with many different vegetables. Usually, it’s prepared with peas, spinach, or potatoes. They also use sour cream or a specific mixture created with milk and flour to thicken the pottage. We have chosen the pea variation for today’s recipe, an old favorite for children and vegetarians because of its lightness and healthy ingredients such as vegetables and dairy products; it also takes only a few ingredients and a few minutes to prepare. It has been a famous traditional dish in Hungary since the 16th century; the origin of this dish is unfortunately unknown.
