"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!"

Hungarian all the way!!! This is the only recipe I have found that is Hungarian all the way!!
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 was a great recipe.My Family LOVED 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???
