Hearty Vegan Goulash

Hearty Vegan Goulash

Growing up, goulash was a cornerstone of my diet. I can remember my mom making it at least once a week. If you have never had goulash before, its kind of like a lazy version of lasagna. I wanted to recreate the easy yet tasty feeling of the goulash that I ate as a child but using all vegan ingredients. This recipe is packed with the yummy flavors of italian food and simple to assemble. I hope you give this version of goulash a try!
