Bello and I have started a Flashback Movie Night tradition on the weekends and I’m cooking! This weekend, the Movie: The Goonies, the Dish: Goulash… well Vegetarian Goulash that is.
I had no idea what a big Goonie Bello was until while on vacation hearing him exclaim “That’s It! Do you remember the scene where he lined up the coin with the rocks… I think that’s it!” Indeed it was true, we were standing in front of Haystack Rock and we were both 10 years old again.
Childhood and vacation flashbacks aside I’m loving this new tradition because it’s the one night of the week we actually turn on the TV and I’m compelled to relax. For our last movie night, I cooked Acorn Squash Brown Butter Sage Pasta while the family watched The Princess Bride. This time, I was determined to catch the entire movie and opted for a dish that was not picky on timing, took only a fork to eat and was comforting, just like Momma would make.
While this recipe has dried Porcini and Button Mushrooms, I left the Truffles for the movie!
You’re welcome! Now let’s zip like Data into the kitchen and get cooking.
Ingredients: As the Goonies say “It all starts here.” Directions: It was about here that I started remembering the fact we were going to be watching GOONIES soon! If you have kids that like to cook, it’s about this point that they are going to get into the dish… it’s Goulashly fun cooking going on here.
Vegetarian Goulash For Goonies

This recipe does not have to be exact by any means, which is a part of what I love about it. It’s easy to customize to your family tastes. If you opt to give a traditional nod and keep the Hungarian Wax Peppers, I think you’ll be delightfully surprised at their tangy complex kick. Keeping the Paprika my big tip here is a no brainer, use the freshest Paprika you can find, the old stuff starts to taste a tad… dirty.
And with that I say, It’s Flashback Movie Time! Just remember… Goonies Never Say Die!
