What do you do when you have lots of veggies that are starting to go bad?  You make goulash!  This recipe originally started out as a way to use up the remaining produce in my fridge.  I spent the money on this stuff and I sure as heck wasn’t going to let it go to waste. 


1T olive oil

6-8 cloves of garlic chopped

1 red bell pepper sliced lengthwise

8-10 white button mushrooms sliced

2 links chicken sausage sliced into 1/2″ rounds

1 bag of baby spinach

1 6oz can of tomato paste

1t oregano

salt & pepper to taste


Add olive oil to large stir fry pan over medium heat.  Add garlic and slightly brown.  Throw in chicken sausage, bell pepper, and mushrooms and stir occasionally until veggies are tender.  Add handfuls of spinach to pan until entire bag is depleted.  Continue to toss ingredients together as spinach wilts.  Spoon in tomato paste and mix well to coat all ingredients.  Sprinkle in oregano and salt & pepper to taste.  Simmer on low heat for 5-10minutes. Enjoy!

I’ve used other veggies such as yellow squash, zucchini, crimini mushrooms, tomatoes and eggplant in this dish.  Again, the idea here was just to prevent my groceries from going to waste.

On another note, Alia will be leaving for London today for about a month.  Here’s to your safe travels!  We’ll miss you while you’re away!
