Healthier Hungarian Goulash – Gluten Free

Posted on

If your family loves Hamburger Helper they’re sure to love this Healthier Hungarian Goulash recipe. Goulash is a meat and pasta based stew that has its roots in Hungary. Since America is a melting pot of cultures, Goulash is also a popular weeknight meal in many American families. Unfortunately many recipes tend to leave out the fresh diced veggies, thus failing to capitalize on the many of the potential health benefits. Veggies not only increase the volume of food on your plate, they also increase the amount of vitamins and minerals without adding a bunch of extra calories and fat. This recipe remembers the veggies and trims the fat by using lean ground beef. For an even lighter option, very lean ground turkey can be used in place of the beef. To print this recipe or for more of my gluten free recipes visit the EZGlutenFree blog at Ingredients list • 1 lb 90 percent lean ground beef • 2 carrots , peeled and diced • 1 onion, peeled and diced • 1potato peeled and diced • 1 rib of celery, diced • 2 cloves of garlic, minced • 1 cup corn (I used frozen corn) • 10 oz gluten free elbow macaroni • (1) 20 oz can of crushed tomatoes • 1 cup of gluten free beef broth • 1 tbsp of Hungarian paprika (or regular paprika) • ½ cup of red wine • 2 tbsp low fat sour cream or Greek yogurt, plus more for garnish if you want • salt and pepper to taste For additional free healthy casserole recipes, cooking tips and tutorials go to To find this

    Never had Hungarian Goulash , but it looks like a very filling meal.? Does the smoked paprika? change the out come if you used just regular paprika??

    Hi David, I should have been more clear about the wine. It’s not cooking wine. It’s red wine? for drinking. Cooking wine would work too.
