Not So Traditional Christmas Lunch

On the second day of Christmas we eat cookies for breakfast in bed. We spend the whole morning in bed. We sleep, or cuddle, or read, or watch movies… Until, around lunchtime, we start to have horrible stomachaches caused by all the sweets we ate for breakfast. Then we heat the husleves without chicken, of course and eat some. It always helps. It puts us back on track so we can visit our families and eat some more unhealthy stuff at theirs. Again. And again. And again.

If you want to survive the holidays transilvanian style, you should totally make yourself some husleves whiteout chicken (!!!), of course. Trust me. That’s the only way to survive.

VEGETARIAN CHICKEN SOUP (Husleves hus nelkul):


  • 4 carrots, peeled, cut in 4
  • 1 potato, peeled, chopped
  • 2 slices of celery
  • 3 – 4 parsley roots
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • 1 buillon cube (vegan, obviously)
  • 1 tablespoon of sweet corns (frozen or canned)
  • 1 tablespoon of peas (frozen or canned)
  • 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil
  • Vermicelli noodles
  • 1 big onion

Clean the vegetables, cut them in quarters or chop them, put all the ingredients together in a big pot (except the noodles). Add water. Cook it covered until all the vegetables are soft and cooked. Boil some water in a separate pot, and cook the noodles respecting the indications from its package. … and add it to the soup. Some people cook the noodles directly in the soup. You can also try that way, but I don’t recommend it. The soup gets kinda jelly that way. And idk… I just like it clear and liquid.

Serve it with mixed vegetables or with carrots only. Erno likes to eat all the vegetables cooked in it. I only like it with carrots and noodles, and nothing else in my plate.
