Vegan Hungarian Goulash

Jill Dalton
Satisfy the heartiest of appetites with this healthy vegan Hungarian Goulash recipe that seamlessly blends traditional flavors with plant-based goodness. Bursting with vibrant vegetables, mushrooms, and aromatic spices, this goulash is a feast for both the eyes and the palate. We replace the traditional meat with protein-packed soy curls, enhancing the dish's texture and nutritional density. The earthy richness of paprika, a quintessential Hungarian spice, infuses the stew with a deep, smoky essence, while a medley of fresh bell peppers, tomatoes, and potatoes adds layers of complexity to the flavor. Cooked to perfection, this vegan goulash boasts a tender consistency and a harmonious blend of spices, resulting in a comforting, soul-warming meal that not only satisfies your taste buds but also nourishes your body with wholesome, plant-based ingredients.

Soy and me don’t work well, I might use Field Roast plant based sausages, any flavor.

Sounds yummy.. The carrots and garlic appear between the onion and red pepper in the ingredients. Are they supposed to be sauteed with them or just put in with all the other ingredients after sauteeing onions and peppers?

Put them in with all the other ingredients after the onions and mushrooms are done sautéing.

This goulash was soooo delicious! I made it as is except that I did not use soy curls.
I think this would make an excellent base for a vegetable soup (w/o the potatoes, in my opinion) with green beans, corn, peas and cabbage. I also think it would be a wonderful base for a bean soup. Such a good base! thanks Jill!

This was a wonderful dish! Amazingly wonderful. I added slivered Tuscan kale at the end and some cooked barley. Certainly is now on our most favorites list!

Hearty and delicious! I did not have soy curls on hand but I always like to include beans so I added adzuki beans (equivalent of 1 can). I also added about a cup of frozen spinach, and I used purple potatoes.
