READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by lynnski LA

This recipe was adapted from one published in the Los Angeles Times about 20 years ago, when they did a feature on polish food. The original recipe called for lard, I make it with canola oil

Fantastic comforting peasant food. Brought back memories of the meals my Polish great-grandmother made. Thanks for posting. (Recipe didn't say when to add tomato paste, so I added it to the broth before mixing into the roux).
