    Goulash is a delicious Hungarian stew of meat simmered with spices like paprika, cumin and lemon zest. I like to add small waxy potatoes.

    This is a delicious, easy to make, and warming soup which can be flavoured to suit individual tastes. I added hot paprika and lots of cumin as we favour that. This is filling and just the thing for cold winter days to get you energised.  -  07 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
