Potato Goulash

The potato goulash recipe has been on our table for decades, it is vegan and extremely tasty. The combination of onions, garlic, red peppers, potatoes and some caraway seeds is just great. Especially in the wintertime, such a soup is soul-warming. It actually tastes good at any other time of the year. Instead of just red peppers, you can also add a little more colour to the goulash by using yellow, green and red peppers.
