An easy one-pot meal with bags of personality and flavour! The whole family will love this classic American dish.Delicious served on its own or with steamed greens and/or a few slices of tasty garlic bread.
Add all the ingredients, except the vegan cheese and red wine vinegar, to a large saucepan.
Season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Push the pasta down below the stock.
Give the goulash a stir now and again as the sauce will thicken up as it cooks.
After 20 minutes remove the saucepan from the heat and add the grated vegan cheese (or ½ cup of nutritional yeast flakes) and 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar. Stir well.
Check the seasoning. I find that it doesn't require any more salt and pepper but add more if required.
If the sauce is a little thin just let it sit for a few minutes off the heat and it will thicken up nicely.
Nutritional information is for guidance only and is not a strict calculation as ingredients vary.
Transfer cool leftovers into a covered container and place in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Leftovers can be placed in a saucepan, along with a little extra veggie stock or water to loosen up the sauce, and gently reheated until piping hot.
Or reheated in a hot oven within a casserole dish until piping hot. Add a little water or stock to loosen up the sauce and cover the dish with kitchen foil if preferred.
An old southern US superstition says that eating black-eyed peas at New Year brings good luck for the rest of the year. It's always worth a try! However, the black-eyed peas can be replaced with your preferred variety of bean.
Not keen on vegan cheese? Simply omit or replace with about ½ a cup of nutritional yeast flakes to achieve a tasty cheesy flavour.
Vegan mince can be subbed for fine diced mushrooms or cooked green, brown or black lentils. If using mushrooms add these at the beginning of cooking. If choosing cooked lentils tip these in to the goulash a few minutes before the end of cooking just to heat them through.
For gluten-free goulash use a gluten-free pasta shape, gluten-free stock and Tamari soy sauce which is usually gluten-free.
