With university students getting ready to hit the books once again, we thought we should do our part to help students make their money go farther.
Goulash is a popular recipe for Canadian university students because it is easy to make, the ingredients don’t (completely) break the bank, and there are always leftovers.
It is also a versatile meal because the ingredients can be adjusted to accommodate pescatarians, vegetarians, and vegans.
The ground beef can be left out completely or replaced with textured vegetable protein or diced tofu and the cheddar cheese can be swapped out for you’re your favourite vegan cheese.
If you want to add more vitamins and minerals, simply add some greens like spinach or kale to the vegetable and sauce mixture.
1 (12 ounce) package egg noodles or pasta
1 pound lean ground beef or TVP
1 (26 ounce) jar pasta sauce
1 cup whole kernel corn

Salt, pepper to taste – and cayenne pepper and hot sauce, if you like the heat
