Vegetable Stew with Dumplings (Vegetariansky Paprikáš)

« »

Paprikáš is a common Slovak stew (of Hungarian origins) consisting of vegetables such as tomato and pepper in a cream sauce with a good serving of the sweet pepper paprika. Chicken paprikash is particularly popular. Here is my alternative that I cooked up the last weekend. The main difference is that this one is completely vegetarian.

Ingredients: 1 medium onion, 1 packet of sliced mushrooms, 1 clove garlic, 1 small tomato, few slices of bell pepper, sour cream, paprika, potato and flour for halušky
Prep Time: about an hour

Dice the onion and fry on a bit of oil until golden. Then add the mushrooms, tomato, pepper, and garlic. Add about a tablespoon of paprika and salt and pepper to taste. You may also want to add a pinch of Cayenne pepper. Pour in about a quarter cup of water, cover, and let simmer.

In the meantime, prepare the potato dumplings. I have few pictures here but you may be better off following the link for the actual recipe.
