traditional Hungarian dish
Potato goulash was the goulash for poor people. Those who couldn't afford meat cooked this dish, which has the original goulash flavor, without meat - so vegetarian also can consume this!
It contains a gazillion of calories, but it's really tasty, so it worths some extra exercizes :)

    Add water, almost the same level as the potatos. Add the seasonings - cumin, garlic, "Vegeta" or other food seasoning, soup flavouring cubes (I use chicken flavour), stir again.

    If you want some extra-tasty flavour, put something smoked in to it. 50-100 gram smoked bacon, gammon, sausage, turkey leg or anything you like.

Thanks for your comments Happy

Tiffany, I am actually Hungarian and believe me, we put cumin and oil in many dishes.
If fact, we have a specially cumin-soup. This soup contains nothing but water, flour and cumin and oil (or lard). Some put in eggs and call it egg-soup. Without egg the name is "rántott leves". "Leves" means soup, and "rántott" comes from "rántás" which means caramelizing flour in fat (oil or lard).
We also put cumin in some vegetabele dishes (especially with cole or potatoes).
Long time ago most of people used lard for cooking, but in the last twenty years (and I am 31 years old Happy ) they prefer vegetable oil.
I hope I could help Happy
Have a nice day!

NEVER EVER PUT CUMIN IN A HUNGARIAN DISH, or use oil.
instead of cumin use caraway seed, and instead of oil use lard.
