Goulash probably originated in Hungary, but it is also enjoyed throughout Central and Southern Europe, Scandinavia and…well, just about everywhere else where rich-tasting comfort food is enjoyed by those looking for a simple and fulfilling meal!
There are many variations of this hearty dish served either as a soup or stew. The common denominator is paprika, which envelops the ingredients and provides a rich color and unmistakable flavor profile. Most original versions are thick stews made of meat and vegetables. They are commonly served with small egg noodles. My version uses seitan to replace the meat, and mushrooms and bell peppers as the main vegetables. But really, this dish is so flexible, you can keep the main technique and use whatever meat replacement you favor or whatever vegetable you prefer…just be sure to use an excellent sweet paprika.
I like serving goulash with small whole-wheat pasta because it reminds me of something I ate earlier in my life…and doesn’t that perfectly define comfort food?
Yield: makes about 8 servings.
