Goulash ~ THM S, E or FP

image_pdfimage_print

This is comfort food at its finest! Warm, savory and hearty; this will fast become a go to, family favorite recipe! I have made some additions to my go-to recipe to give this dish an even more nutritious punch. Adding some crumbled mushrooms to the ground meat bulks it up without adding any different flavor. Also, you can make this meal fit into any simply by changing the fat content of your meat and the type of noodle!

For an E, use a bean based noodle (elbow or penne shapes work great, but any shape will do. If you use spaghetti break the length into thirds) and be sure to use 96% lean ground meat. You can add a dollop of greek yogurt and a wedge of light laughing cow cheese when you serve if desired.

For an S you can use any ground meat you’d like. Use Dreamfields pasta or konjac based noodles. You can add sour cream and cheese when serving if you’d like.

For FP, make sure you use 96% lean ground meat and konjac based noodles. Enjoy a dollop of Greek yogurt and a wedge of light laughing cow cheese when serving if desired.

If you choose to use konjac noodles be sure to leave the water out of the recipe. Enjoy!!
