Vegan Goulash – By Beth Kahn, Dietitian

So what to make for dinner? Tonight I answered that question by creating a delicious and simple, vegan dish. Try this easy recipe to enjoy a low-cal, healthy and hearty meal.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup quinoa grain

1 vegan sausage, sliced

1 half onion, sliced

1 teaspoon vegetable oil or non-stick cooking spray

1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce, spices or other flavored sauce

1 portabella mushroom, sliced

1/2 cup frozen peas

Directions: Cook quinoa per instructions and set aside. Blanch frozen peas in hot water. Set aside. Saute onion, mushrooms and sausage in oil or non-stick cooking spray for 2-3 minutes. Add peas, sauce or spices and stir until heated. Add sausage mixture to quinoa. Serve, enjoy and feel and look great! Serves 2.

Note: Many other vegetables can be added in place of peas. For example, try adding fresh spinach or chopped broccoli.
