Vegan goulash with seitan, bell pepper & noodles

Maybe you know paprika goulash from your childhood. We definitely remember this dish from our kindergarten and home. Typically it's prepared with beef, fresh bell peppers, and paprika powder. We kept our vegan version very close to the original one. We only replaced beef with seitan and used veggie broth instead of beef broth. If you like, you can add a spoon of plant-based cream or sour cream in the end. It's also possible to serve the goulash with dumplings, tagliatelle, potatoes, or rice – a quick, easy, and perfectly comfy dish for autumn, winter, and spring.
