This is a vegetarian version of a classic Hungarian soup. For a vegan version, substitute vegan pasta for the noodles. You can choose sweet or hot Hungarian pepper, but we like it hot!

  • Add paprika, textured vegetable protein, and green pepper; cook and stir mixture until vegetables are coated with paprika. Stir in broth or water, potatoes, carrots, tomato, 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and parsley. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until carrots and potatoes are almost tender. Add more water if needed.

  • In a small bowl, mix together, egg, flour, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix in enough water to have a smooth consistency; dough should be stiff and sticky. Spoon onto a flat plate, and slice off small amounts into soup while it is simmering. Add to soup in such a way that noodles do not land in the same spot every time. Continue until all mixture has been added to pot. Simmer until done.

There is something seriously wrong with the proportions in this recipe. I had doubts at first but since there was a 4-star rating I decided to try it. First of all the recipe says it serves 3 servings at 1 000 calories each. That's fine--I figured that had to be a mistake and should be say 6 servings instead. Second I had never tried TVP before but had misgivings about using 8 ounces and putting it all in the broth so early. Still that's what the recipe says so I did it. It ended up soaking up a lot of the liquid so I had to keep adding more. All in all the combined amounts of vegetables and TVP made the soup very chunky and I had to double (at least) the amount of liquid. Didn't even bother making the noodles--I would have ended up with enough food to feed an army! This makes 8 to 10 servings for me. I doubled the paprika and pepper because having to add so much more liquid made the soup more bland. Read More

Ilona Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. While the soup was simmering the pleasant aroma brought back memories of my Hungarian grandmother's kitchen when I was a child many years ago. My husband and I both loved the gulyas. It tasted very Hungarian despite the lack of beef. I only made 2 modifications. I had to use regular paprika (not Hungarian) as it was not available in my supermarket and I did not use the vegetable protein. I will definitely make this again as my husband raved about it.

This passed for a meal but if you're a feeding a beginner-vegetarian family... this will cause havok. Had to make the kids eat some with bribes of ice cream& fruit. Hubby didn't like the thick dumpling/noodles much but he ate it because it's healthy. We thought it was bland flavorless. Guess we're just not a Hungarian family at heart. Used Sweet Hungarian Paprika and followed instructions save for the vegetable protien I crumbled two Original Garden Burgers in. Even added some summer squash slices at the end because it just wasn't tasting like much. What do I do with the rest??? Read More
