Hungary is famous for its amazing cuisine. Hungarians use a lot of condiments and the most well-known is paprika. Hungarian people enjoy spicy and hot foods, but on a hot summer day a lighter meal is preferable.
Here, I introduce 3 very summery, simple, and light Hungarian recipes.
The first course is a sweet soup that can be eaten cold or hot. It is called Fruit Soup (gyümölcs leves) and is very easy to make. Different types of fruits can be used in this soup, but it is best to use ones in season. This soup is perfect to eat at any time of the day! Remember it is not a dessert, even though it is sweat. The recipe is easy and quick to make (approximately 20-30 minutes).

The second recipe I’d recommend is for lecsó. Lecsó is a Hungarian tomato-pepper ragout sometimes made with scrambled eggs. Of course, the soul of this delicious summer dish is simply paprika and onion. It is quick and easy to cook – making this dish very popular in Hungary. If you want to make this dish richer, you can add some bacon or kolbász (Hungarian paprika sausage) to the recipe.

The last recipe I recommend is madártej. This dessert is extremely sweet and must be eaten cold – perfect for hot days! What does madártej mean? Madártej translated to English means bird-milk. Why do you think it is called that?
