Chunky Goulash & Vegetable Soup

Chunky Goulash and Vegetable Soup ~ Rich, hearty Soup with a pastry cap ! #Soup #HeartySoup #ComfortFood

Every family has their own favorite soup recipes. Chicken soup, Beef soup, Vegetable soup - name them and you will have a favorite.

I am sharing our Goulash and Vegetable soup today, which I might add, does not get served this way - with the pastry topping - every time. It's just different and to dip the puffy pastry into the soup is delectable !

Mostly we will have soup with freshly baked bread or with a grilled cheese on the side. This soup is so thick and filling, there is really no need for any heavy sides. It is also perfect over rice or mashed potatoes if you'd prefer to go that way.

Bake the Puff Pastry when the soup starts to simmer.


  • 2 TB Olive Oil
  • 500g Beef Goulash {chunks}
  • 2 Carrots, peeled and grated
  • 2 t Garlic, crushed
  • 2 Celery Ribs, chopped
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 Potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 TB Tomato Paste
  • 1 can Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 t Sugar
  • 1 cup Frozen Corn, defrosted
  • 1 cup Frosted Green Beans, defrosted
  • 1 t Dried Oregano
  • 4 cups Beef or Vegetable Stock
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • 1 Roll Frozen Puff Pastry, defrosted
  • 1 Egg, beaten

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Heat the Olive Oil in a large saucepan - cook the Goulash until just done.
  3. Add the Carrots, Garlic, Celery and Onion to the meat - stir-fry for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the Potatoes, Tomato Paste, Tomatoes, Sugar, Corn, Beans, Oregano and Stock to the meat - simmer for 25 - 30 minutes or until the Potatoes and Beans are tender - season to taste with Salt & Black Pepper.
  5. Unroll the Puff Pastry and using your serving dish, press out the shapes - leftover Puff Pastry can be cut into triangles or fingers - place on the prepared baking sheet and brush with the beaten Egg - bake 20 minutes until puffed and golden.
  6. Spoon soup into serving dishes when done and top with a baked piece of Puff Pastry.

Do not place the Puff Pastry on the soup if you are not serving immediately as it will absorb the soup and go soft.

This is a delicious, hearty soup and definitely comfort food at it's best.
