Mushroom Paprikash with Mashed Potatoes and Crispy Greens

mushroom paprikash (2)

Paprika is one of my favorite spices; if I ever run out, I get really upset. Paprika adds heat and warmth without being spicy and I put it in most of my dishes. Paprika is used a lot in Hungarian cuisine and in fact, paprikash is a dish where the sauce is made from paprika. You’ve seen this here in my recipe for וועגאַן “הינדל” Paprika with Wide Noodles and Kale which I made with Butler Foods Soy Curls.

Yesterday I had an urge for a simple dish. I wanted mashed potatoes and I wanted mushrooms and greens. That’s what I went in the kitchen to make but I came out with a paprikash dish.

This is a simple recipe and you can change up any of the components to your liking. The mashed potatoes can be swapped with polenta, לאָקשן, mashed cauliflower, mashed celery root or whatever puree you would like on the bottom.

וסואַללי, when I make mashed potatoes, I add non-dairy milk but I wanted it lighter so I used broth. It still turned out really smooth and creamy. The trick is to use the masher like a whisk. After you’ve mashed up the taters and added the seasonings and broth, use the masher like a whisk until the potatoes are smooth.

For the main part of the dish, you can use tofu, טעמפּעה, סעיטאַן, cauliflower or any mushrooms of your choosing. I used white button mushrooms but any kind would be great.

לעסאָף, for the greens you can use whichever you like best. I used a combination of spinach and kale which is a good flavor and texture pairing.
