I’ve passed by the vegetarian chorizo so many times over the years at the store but always hesitated in buying it. Sometimes you buy soy products and they have a horrible taste and taste super fake. So I was leery about what it would taste like. The only thing that changed my mind was that it was only .99 cents! So I started to think about what I could make with it and decided to make my breakfast hash. You can use any veggies, an egg, throw in a small cooked potato – chopped add the soy chorizo and you’ve got yourself an awesome breakfast! And, for 2 oz. serving it’s only 80 calories.
Here’s what I did:
1/4 yellow pepper
1 green onion
1 oz. soy chorizo
In a small skillet, add the soy chorizo and cook for a few minutes. Next, add the carrot, pepper and green onion and cook for a few more minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, bake the potato in the microwave and slice. Add that to the stir fry and stir until everything is incorporated.
Transfer to a dish. Wipe the skillet clean and fry an egg with a little cooking spray so it won’t stick. Cut up egg and add it to the mixture.
The soy chorizo made it so flavorful. I was thinking the soy chorizo would make a great base for a Mexican pizza. Use either a pita bread or pizza dough, cover with the soy chorizo, black beans, a little cheese and bake…I can’t wait to try that!
Have you ever tried soy chorizo before?? What do you make with it?
