After a visit to the hospital many years ago I became a vegetarian do to some serious stomach issues. Years went by and a return to eating meat. I can admit I love bacon but I am not an eat meat everyday person. However, my husband is. Over a week ago, my husband decided to go vegetarian with me; well pescatarian. He loves fish and I thought that maybe if he can do this he will eat healthier over all. So, I made this mushroom goulash.
He is a potato is a vegetable type of guy. To my surprise he has done very well and has found he likes other things not just meat and potatoes. I decided to try this mushroom goulash to see how he would like it. I loved it and he wasn’t so sure.
Probably because he is so used to the beef version. Next time I will do a mushroom and pepper goulash we will have to see how that one goes over. I think the only thing to add extra flavor to this would be a little rosemary or some marjoram. Carrots would be great for extra texture in the dish and of course plenty of onion because it’s not goulash if it doesn’t have onion.
