Mushroom Paprikash

A Few Words…

Mushroom Paprikash is a flavorful and fragrant hearty mushroom stew made with 2 different kinds of paprika.

It’s an easy side dish that can be paired with any meal and great over noodles. If you want extra heat, just add more paprika!

The mushrooms were hearty, delicious and it was a nice change and addition to our family dinner.
