    Green Beans Paprikas - Hungarian Recipe

    I was at my parents this weekend and while in garden I gathered lots of season’s goodies: green beans, peas, kohlrabies, potatoes and so on. A lot of green beans.

    Also from my father’s I got some dozens of free-range eggs, so I wanted to cook something to combine these two main ingredients.

    Rge recipe I invented is mainly a Hungarian recipe with the addition of the hard-boiled eggs to the stew somewhat Southeast Asian style.
