Which mushrooms for mushroom goulash?

I used fresh brown mushrooms for my mushroom goulash. You can use dried mushrooms instead, such as porcini. A mixture of fresh and dried mushrooms is also suitable for the recipe.

If you use dried mushrooms, you will need much less of them than of the fresh ones. Also, you need to soak dried mushrooms briefly in hot water beforehand and then drain them.

Goulash with mushrooms

Use spices and herbs of your choice

To make your mushroom goulash flavorful, you should season it well. It’s just like with vegan lentil patties or oatmeal patties. Use spices and possibly fresh herbs of your choice. Which ones you use depends entirely on your taste.

If you like vegan goulash with mushrooms spicy, you can add some chili powder**. With thyme**, marjoram** or nutmeg** you can also refine it additionally. Fresh parsley also goes well with it.

I seasoned my mushroom goulash with smoked paprika**, fresh rosemary and black pepper.

Experiment with vegetables

You can use a variety of vegetables for the mushroom goulash recipe. I cooked it with carrots and bell peppers. Alternatively, you can leave them out or add just one of them.

You can also add tomatoes, peas or tomato paste to the vegan goulash. Instead of fresh vegetables you can also use frozen ones.

Vegan mushroom goulash

Use vegan red wine

Not all red wine you buy in supermarkets or online is vegan. It may contain animal by-products.

Therefore, make sure that you use vegan red wine** for the mushroom goulash recipe. Most of the time it is explicitly stated on the wine label.

Thicken mushroom goulash as desired

If you want the sauce to be creamier, you can add some starch. To do this, dissolve about a tablespoon of corn or potato starch in a small portion of cold vegetable milk, such as soy milk, almond milk or lupine milk. Add the starch mixture to the mushroom goulash just before it is done cooking. You need to stir thoroughly and remove the dish from the heat after a few minutes, as it thickens very quickly.

I find that thickening the goulash with mushrooms is absolutely unnecessary. However, you can decide according to your taste whether to do it or not.
