I forgot to add the sugar, salt, and pepper in the end and it still tasted great! I think next time I am going to add a little more wine (I'd like more sauce) and add a tad of flour just to thicken up the sauce.

DH and I enjoyed this vegetarian goulash for dinner last night. It was easy to make and comforting on a chilly evening. I used the red wine and the optional caraway seeds, both of which added to the dish. Instead of veggie crumbles, I chopped up two vegetarian Italian sausage links from Trader Joe's. I used a can of diced tomatoes and this worked fine. We served over fresh orchiette noodles and I added a little Parmesan cheese to the top of mine. Thanks for a great recipe!

Mostly followed the receipe, but used diced tomatoes instead of whole, added squash and zucc. and elbow mac. I loved this when I was a kid and still do. You can basically add any veggie you want and it will still come out great. I didnt add the puree or the red wine but added some garlic and it was great.
