This recipe comes to you all the way from the great state of Kansas and more specifically my Grandma’s recipe book.  Technically there isn’t an exact recipe of my Grandma’s Goulash, but this is pretty darn close.  Her Goulash was inspired by her German roots and although I don’t know the exact origin, I know it was and still is a prized family recipe.  It’s not fancy or overly complicated, which is why it’s so lovable.  It’s simple, no frills, comforting, and delicious.  The original recipe was not plant-based or gluten free, so I made a few tweaks and to my delight this version tastes just like I remember.
