Soy Chorizo

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 potato
1 carrot
1/4 yellow pepper
1 green onion
1 oz. soy chorizo
1 egg
fresh cilantro

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?

    We LOVE the soy chorizo. We use it in our chili, eggs, tacos. Yummy stuff!

  2. Never have used it… smiled when I saw it, but that’s my prejudice. It does make sense, as the spices over power the taste of the pork, so why not!

    BTW, glad to see all the personal stuff back on the site. Now I really love the new look


  3. I’ve never used soy chorizo. Your breakfast hash looks and sounds very yummy!

  4. I had a “chorizo” for the first time at the Vida Vegan conference – it was SO good! good to know you like this one, I’m thinking of buying some.

  5. I have to find this! And hopefully when I do it will only be 99 cents – what a great deal!
