Pumpkin and Carrot Goulash

A Goulash is a soup or stew of meat and vegetables, seasoned with paprika, oregano and other spices. It is native to Hungary. Unlike most soups, a goulash can be eaten hot or cold. Most meat recipes are consumed while hot and recipes like cucumber goulash are eaten cold. It is the perfect dish to pair with a salad and acts as great comfort food.

The recipe here is very easy to make. It is a basic goulash and can be eaten hot or cold.

What you will need:

250 Grams chopped pumpkin

1 Small carrot (chopped)

1 Small Tomato (Cut into half)

1 Cup water

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 Clove Garlic

1 Teaspoon Oregano

1/2 Teaspoon Paprika ( It can be substituted with chili powder)

1 Teaspoon parsley

Chopped Coriander


What you need to do:

Start of by  adding the water, pumpkin, carrot and tomato in a heavy bottom pan. Boil them together until soft. Make sure to peel the skin of the tomato before the next step.

Let this cool down for a while. Then add all of this to a mixer with the clove, salt, pepper, oregano, paprika and parsley. Whiz it together till you get a soupy consistency. Add a little more water if needed.











Pour this into a bowl and garnish with some coriander. You can also use fresh cream, roasted nuts or basil to garnish. Toast some bread on the side and top it off with some crunchy croutons! If you want to eat it cold, pop it in the for a while before you eat.












P.S: This is just my version of a goulash. You can add or remove elements according to your individual taste. The vegetables can be substituted with any other veggies that you like or have. You can also add boiled or cooked meat or pasta into this.
