Soyrizo and Chard Over Roasted Potatoes


I never really ate chorizo before going vegetarian, maybe because sausage in general kind of always creeped me out. But for some reason, I love soyrizo! It’s great for breakfast, mixed in with tofu scramble and wrapped in a tortilla. It can be used in tasty appetizers like stuffed mushrooms or stuffed dates.

This soyrizo recipe developed one night from a comfort food craving. Potatoes were most definitely on the menu, but what should I put on top? As I searched through the shelves and drawers in my fridge, the package of soryizo I recently bought popped into view. These two ingredients would most definitely go well together.

When I first created this recipe, I served the soyrizo and chard mixture over pureed cauliflower, which was delicious, but everything had a similar consistency and kind of resembled slop. The second time around, I opted for chopped and roasted potatoes instead, to provide more texture.

This dish is perfectly tasty without the dill cream, but I just so happened to have some fresh dill in the fridge from my recent explorations creating vegan crab cakes. The potatoes and chard add texture, soyrizo brings the spice and the dill cream brings a creamy fresh flavor that ties it all together.
