Diabetes Diet Recipes
Soups are often a neglected part of meals today, which is a shame as soup can be easy to make, warming, filling and nutritious. Not only can soup be used as a starter, it can be the main course of a meal if the ingredients are right.
We will be adding soup recipes to this section for both starters and main courses. The recipe below is for a soup which can be used as a main course.
Hungarian Goulash soup
2 large onions, chopped
4 tbsp goose fat
1 kg (2.2 lbs) diced or minced beef
1 tbsp paprika
1.75 litres (3 pints) chicken stock
1/2 large green pepper, cored, de-seeded and sliced
4 tomatoes, peeled and sliced
2 tbsp tomato paste
Salt and white pepper to taste
Saute the onion in the goose fat until golden brown. Add the meat and paprika.
Cover and simmer for ten minutes, stirring occasionally. If needed, a little chicken broth can be added to prevent sticking.
Add the green pepper, tomato, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Pour in half the chicken stock and cook, covered over low heat for about 2 hours or until meat is tender.
During the cooking, stir a few times, adding more chicken broth as needed.
Ten minutes before end of cooking time, add remaining stock.
Taste and correct seasoning if needed.
Serve in heated soup bowls.
