Katherine and I were watching Paula Deen yesterday and she and her son Bobby made Goulash. We thought it looked interesting so I whipped up a batch with what I had on hand and tweaked it a bit. The result was delicious! Next I want to try the Caramel Cake she made on that show too! ;o)

What You'll Need:
Extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 small package of mushrooms, sliced
1 large clove of garlic, minced (or 3 small cloves)
1 teaspoon of dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon of dried basil
1 teaspoon of onion powder
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 - 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes
2 - 15 ounce cans of tomato sauce
2 cans of water
3/4 package of textured soy protein
3/4 of a package of fusilli (The fusilli I used came in a 1 lb 1.6 oz package)

In a stock pot sauté onion, mushrooms and garlic until tender. Add thyme, basil, onion powder, a pinch of sea salt, some freshly ground black pepper and soy sauce. Stir to mix. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce and water. Bring to a boil and then lower heat to a simmer cook for about 15-10 minutes to let flavors meld. Add soy protein and fusilli and cook for 6-8 minutes until fusilli is done. Serve immediately.

Notes: Paula's recipe called for Italian seasoning, but since I don't usually have that on hand, I just used the components separately, minus the oregano which I'm out of at the moment and keep forgetting to purchase. The recipe also called for macaroni noodles, but I used fusilli instead because that's what I had on hand. We used soy protein and mushrooms in place of meat, because I'm not a fan of red meat most of the time. In short all of that to say this is a very easy dish to mix and match.

I liked it too! I could have sworn that goulash was supposed to have corn and lima beans though. Next time I may have to add those in! :o)
