Pumpkin Turkey Goulash – a lighter, yet still hearty and delicious, version of the classic Hungarian stew. Perfect for a cozy fall dinner.
A Lighter Take on Goulash
Goulash is a Hungarian stew of beef and vegetables seasoned with paprika and other spices. This lighter take on the traditional dish, uses turkey, instead of beef, and includes pumpkin.
I love using pumpkin in savory dishes. It adds a wonderful richness to this dish, with no additional fat, and complements the turkey nicely. Using boneless skinless turkey thighs makes this an easy dish to prepare. If you can’t find boneless skinless turkey thighs, boneless skinless chicken thighs are a great substitute.
Paprika and thyme are the star spices of this Pumpkin Turkey Goulash. They go beautifully together and are so delicious with the pumpkin and turkey.
This Pumpkin Turkey Goulash has a wonderful sauce. I like to serve it over egg noodles. A dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of caraway seeds and sliced green onions are the perfect toppings.
