Vegetable Goulash

From Baby & Child Vegetarian Recipes.  I increased the amounts used in the original recipe as it used half an onion/pepper etc & I didn’t want the remainder sitting in the fridge.  We also added a tin of tomatoes to give it a bit more sauce.

DD2 (8m) & I had this for lunch, & both enjoyed it, although she struggled a bit with the kidney bean skins (they did seem very tough).  I started off just mashing the beans, but ended up pureeing it.   I could barely taste the paprika, so will add more than a pinch next time.

We had this again recently, DD2 (now 1.9) loved it & was ramming it into her mouth as fast as she could. DD1 (4) currently doesn’t like cooked peppers, or mushrooms, so I picked her out some carrot, potato & kidney beans & she was happy.


  • 1 tbsp veg oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 large carrot, peeled & finely chopped
  • 1 green pepper, de-seeded & finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, de-seeded & finely chopped
  • 0.25 – 0.5 tsp mild paprika
  • 200g mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 large potato, peeled & diced
  • 3 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tin red kidney beans, washed & drained

to serve

  • 200g basmati rice
  • 4 tbsp natural yoghurt (optional)


  1. heat the oil, add the onion, carrot, peppers and paprika and fry gently until softened but not browned.
  2. add the mushrooms, cover and cook gently for 15 mins
  3. add the potato, tomato puree and drained beans and allow to simmer for 30mins or until the potato is very tender,  adding a water as required

  5. if serving to a baby, you might like to mix the cooked veg, rice & yogurt together (puree or mash if required)
