Vegan Paprikás (Hungarian Potato Stew)

October 29, 2018
A very budget-friendly and easy-to-make recipe: Originally Hungarian potato stew, aka paprikás, is made with sausage. This version is vegan and gluten-free, and of course for a more traditional version you can add your choice of vegan sausage as well. It might sound weird but as a Hungarian with celiac disease I'm not a fan of most Hungarian dishes because we make everything with meat, dairy, and flour. But this one is my childhood comfort food. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
