Hungarian Goulash and an award :)

>> Thursday, February 21, 2008

Whenever I make any soup or stew, AJ loves it and if he wants it to be made again, he says " make that goulash thing no". At first, I had no idea what he was talking about as I didnt know what a goulash was and I was pretty sure that I have never made one :D Its only later, that I understood that it was his "generic" term for soup!! :D

Last week, I decided to make the real Goulash for him. Since, I am a vegetarian, I had to look for a vegetarian Goulash recipe and found it here.

1 tsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms ( i used the assorted gourmet mushrooms)
2 garlic cloves
1 green bell pepper
1 cup assorted veggies, chopped ( you can use carrots, potatoes etc)
1 tsp paprika
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup red wine
1 tsp oregano ( dried)
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp sugar
salt and pepper

Heat the olive oil and saute the onions garlic and mushrooms. Add the green pepper, veggies and paprika and saute for another 3 mins. Mix in the tomatoes as well. Now, add the wine, oregano and tomato paste. Add enough water to make a stew like consistency and let it simmer for about 15 mins. Add the sugar and salt and pepper, just before serving.

I am sending this out to Monthly Mingle February 2008 - One-Dish Dinner.

Now for the best part. Last week, Easy Crafts of Simple Indian Food bestowed me with the Nice Matters Award.

“Nice Matters Award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world.”

Thank you so much, Easy crafts, for thinking that I deserve this award!

I would love to pass this on to all of you bloggers out there, because I believe that, we all inspire someone or the other, become good friends as time goes on and defenitely deserve the Nice Matters Award. But, since I have to pass it on to specific bloggers, I would like to choose some of my old friends, who have inspired me when i was new to blogging and to some new friends I made on the way!! :)
