Sorry but we don't want to promote to much "counting" that's why we only have the carbs in gram.
But If you feel that this is important to you then use the formula below to calculate, a bit complicated though. ;-)
(%PROTEIN / %CARB) * gram_CARB = gram_PROTEIN
(%FAT / %CARB) * 4/9 * gram_CARB = gram_FAT
gram_CARB * 4 + gram_PROTEIN*4 + gram_FAT*9 = CALORIES
On the left hand side of the recipe where you can choose between US/Metric, there you also can find a drop down menu for servings. Chose one serving and you will get your data.
Yes, that would be a great substitution!
So in other words I used the little bit of hamburger I had, a stalk of celery, a small raw tomato, roasted garlic I had and left-over onions and mushrooms and a little bit of water. It made 2 servings. A great way to put a meal together with the few odds and ends I had in the house. Thanks again!!!!
But delicious and will make again!
You can try a little cumin or coriander.
As all Hungarian cooks know, add the paprika off the heat :)
The soup will be good with it?
Won’t it be like a pottage?
Sorry I just cant imagine this, but I wanna try this recipe.
That depends on how much you let it cook down but yes, ground beef/mince.
When eyeballing is difficult, I measure it out into equal servings. Thank you for your feedback!
Depending on where you live, this is quite possible.
Also, we like to top our bowls with a bit of shredded cheese; it gets a deliciously gooey consistency after its melted! A++ on an already great recipe!
The cheese sounds like an excellent add on! So glad you love this one!
To determine the size of a single serving, you will need to divide the finished dish into the number of servings you set the recipe. You can do this visually by estimating or portioning it out.
