Goulash of the Gods

I come from a midwestern background where goulash is macaroni, ground beef, tomato juice and paprika. It's good, but this stuff is better.

Start with this recipe. I put much more paprika, cut the oregano and basil down a bit, made it one potato, one onion and one green pepper. Also, I cut up eight ounces of mushrooms, and added a large handful of what are called "soyatene", basically large chunks of defatted soy protein which unfortunately looks a lot like dog food, pre- soaked in some vegetable broth. I also added about 1/4 cup of butter, leaving out the oil. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, let sit for about 40 minutes. When I put the noodles on to boil, I turned the heat up on the goulash to high and let it boil for about 5 minutes. Drain noodles, put a little butter on them, dish the goulash out. Tasty.
