This is one of my Grandma's Hungarian recipes. It's a very hearty and comforting soup. You can use dried beans by soaking over night and cooking until soft before adding to the soup - around 5-6 cups cooked beans. If you don't have a powdered stock on hand, just use 5-6 cups of liquid stock. Serve with Hungarian Dumplings (noodles), rice or alone.
