goulash style stew

Onion (1-1.5 red or white or mixed, sliced thin or small)
Garlic (1-2 cloves, crushed)
Red pepper (1/4 cut into small pieces, add more if you would like)
Potatoes (2-4 medium sized, cut into cubes)
Smoked tofu (1/2 a block or more, cut into cubes)
Green lentils (1/2-1 cup, optional)
Green beans (1 handful, tops cut off)
Paprika (1-1.5 tsp)
Hot smoked Spanish paprika (1/4 tsp)
Tomato puree (5 tbsp)
Vegetable stock (1 cube/1 tsp, add water to cover)
Marmite (3/4 tsp)
Olive oil
Salt & pepper

Optional to add as much tomato puree, garlic, tofu, potatoes, etc, as you like, this is set to my taste preference. Can also add other veggies or faux meats.

Fry onion and red pepper until browned and add garlic. Add paprika, potatoes, lentils and tofu (fry the tofu separately if you want it crisper) and mix together. Add vegetable stock and cook for 30-40 minutes until potatoes and lentils are cooked. Add in green beans in last 10 minutes of cooking. Add tomato puree, hot paprika and marmite, cook for a further few minutes and season to taste. Serve with bread, rice, etc.
