Last night my husband invited some of his friends over for a "home-cooked" meal.. Of course they wanted to try Hungarian food. I prefer to serve people real, clean foods-- all organic if possible.
So since I was feeding some men that have big appetites and aren't vegetarian, I thought I would make some sausage & paprikas with a sweet & spicy sauce.
What you need:
1 Cup Dry Rice (preferably brown or wild mix)
1 Organic Green Pepper, Sliced
1 Organic Yellow Pepper, Sliced
3-4 Organic Mushrooms, Sliced
1 Medium Organic Onion, Sliced
10 Organic Grape Tomatoes, Halved
5 Cloves Garlic, Minced
4 Sausages (Try to go for free range, cruelty free, and local butchers if possible!)
3 Tbsp Sweet Hungarian Paprika
4-5 Tbsp Hot Hungarian Paprika (do this to taste because it makes the food very spicy)
1-2 Tsp Basil
1 Organic Avocado
2 Tbsp Minced Onions
1 Cup Organic Sour Cream
1 Tbsp Sweet Paprika
1 Tsp Hot Hungarian Paprika
2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Basil
What you do:
1- Cook the rice first, in a sauce pan put 2 cups of water and bring to boil. Once boiling- add 1 cup of rice, stir well. I like to add whole cumin seeds to add extra flavor. Simmer on med-low, stirring often about 20-25 minutes. Then cover with lid and remove from heat for about 5 minutes.
2- In frying pan, combine 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil. Add the whole sausages and with a lid on medium heat. After about 2-3 minutes, turn the sausages. For about 5 minutes, cook the sausages- while covered.
3- Preheat your oven to 350. In a 9X13 glass pan, put a few tbsp of coconut oil, then put the rice down- kind of make a bed of rice. I like to add some extra paprika here and garlic.
4- Take the sausages from the pan and chop them up. Add them to the rice and stir.
5- In the same pan you cooked the sausages, there should be oil left in it from the sausages & coconut oil, add the chopped up veggies (onions, garlic, peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes). Sautee the veggies, add some paprikas and basil.
6- Once sauteed, add them to the glass pan, I add about 1/2 cup of water, if you have any spices left over add them, and stir well. Place the pan in the oven for about 20-30 minutes.
To make the Sauce:
1- In a nutribullet or food processor, combine avocado & sour cream. Blend together. If it is too thick add a small amount of milk or water.
2- In small frying pan combine onions and spices with some coconut oil. Sautee the onions- once sauteed, add the blended mixture. Mix well together. Once heated thoroughly, put into a bowl.
To serve the meal, in a bowl scoop some sausage & peppers with rice. Drizzle the sauce on top and eat with dill pickles!
