This is my Goulash of sorts with lots of Vegetables
I know a proper Goulash is a Stew with lots of Meat,Vegetables and Paprika.
So I guess this is a play on words.
Another quick and easy Meal to prepare for busy Parents with hungry Kids.
I love Dishes where you can just put every-thing into one Pan. Saves on washing up and usually involves less fussing.
Perhaps your Family are not so keen on some Winter Vegetables like Brussel Sprouts. These can be incorporated with other ingredients and hopefully they won’t notice.
I must admit Brussel Sprouts do have a strong flavour and served on their own is probably asking a bit much for younger Children.
Children can be so contrary, don’t like something and won’t try again, it’s for Life.
The words, “Don’t like it”, with a screwed up Face are seen and heard.
Been there, done that. OMG I sound like my Mother, disguising Food. Help
