Goulash is a Hungarian stew that dates back to Medieval times. You know it's good because it's still made today; it's also easily made vegan. Bursting with flavors and goodness this smoked tofu goulash is made with sweet potatoes, peppers, and lots of smoked paprika. A comforting dish, this recipe is straightforward to make. You can substitute smoked tofu for plain tofu if you prefer.

Smoked Tofu Goulash [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


  • 14 ounces sweet potatoes
  • 1 9.9-ounce package smoked tofu
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 14-ounce can chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 3 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • Olive oil, as needed
  • A bunch of fresh parsley
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cooked rice or grain (barley, quinoa etc… ), to serve


  1. Remove tofu from packaging. Press for 1-4 hours to drain any excess water.
  2. When you are ready to start cooking, heat some olive oil in a large saucepan.
  3. Add onion, garlic, smoked paprika, and cumin. Cook for a few minutes until onion are soft.
  4. Cut pepper in 3/4-inch wide slices. Halve each slice by cutting it across its width. Cut sweet potatoes in a 3/4-inch dice. Cut pressed tofu into roughly the same size.
  5. Add peppers and sweet potatoes to onion mixture. Stir in tomato paste.
  6. Add chopped tomatoes, vegetable stock, wine, and bay leaf.
  7. Tip tofu in the saucepan. Stir gently to mix ingredients in without breaking up the tofu dice.
  8. Bring to a boil then cook over medium heat for 20-30 minutes until sweet potatoes are soft (they should still have a bite).
  9. Season to taste with lemon juice (1/4 to 1/2 lemon), salt, and pepper.
  10. Add one to two generous handfuls of chopped parsley on top.
  11. Serve with cooked rice or grains of your choice.
