Hungarian Goulash Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
I taught with the Defense Department in Germany (and met my husband, an Air Force pilot, there). Goulash soup was one of the first foods I tried overseas...I pieced this recipe together once I got back home. I make it often—with two little boys, 3 and 1, it's nice knowing that dinner is "under control"!

"This soup was absolutely delicious! My husband couldn't get enough of it. The aroma itself was mouth-watering. I added carrots as well. Yummy!"

"I made this last week and it was delicious, the only thing I added was a few carrots, it disappeared in a hurry. This soup freezes well too."
