Vegan goulash, made with potatoes, vegetables and TVP! A healthy vegan version of the traditional Hungarian dish, this easy recipe requires just one pot but does not miss out on any flavour. Savoury, smoky and rich, it is also oil-free.

  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1.5 cups TVP, (textured vegetable protein)
  • 1 cup fresh tomatoes, chopped

  • 1 cup plant based milk
  • 1 tbsp mustard, ensure vegan and gluten-free
  • 2 cups spinach

  • Saucepan


  • Cover the TVP in lukewarm water and leave to soak for around 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, start by adding onion, garlic, celery and onion powder to a non-stick saucepan with around 2 tbsp water. Sauté for around 3 minutes, until beginning to soften.
  • Add fresh tomatoes, bell pepper and paprika to the saucepan. Sauté for a further 2-3 minutes.
  • Add potatoes, chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, vegetable broth and plant based milk. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for around 10 minutes, until the potatoes begin to soften.

  • Add the spinach and stir them through the goulash until they wilt. Season to taste with salt and serve with rice or noodles.
