Chorizo (Plant Based)

Chorizo tends to be super greasy – this recipe saves us all from that. A smoky spicy flavor and an excellent texture make this sausage crumble something I am going to add to so many things!


We made this in our Weekly Cooking Class!

Chorizo and Potato Burrito

Ingredients


  • 14 oz package of extra firm tofu, pressed*

  • 8 oz block of tempeh

  • ¼ cup raw walnuts

  • 1 tablespoon chipotle powder

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

  • ¼+ teaspoon cayenne pepper (to taste)

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 tablespoon onion powder

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon low sodium tamari or soy sauce

  • ½ teaspoon liquid smoke

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1 tablespoon date syrup

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened/date ketchup

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper (to taste)

  • Optional: sautéed minced onion/mushrooms

Instructions

1.      Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2.      Add tempeh and walnuts to food processor and pulse, or chop well with a knife, to ground “meat” consistency.

3.      In a large bowl, add everything except tofu and tempeh/walnut mixture, whisk well.

4.      Add tofu and tempeh and fold to combine well, being careful not to mash tofu.

5.      Distribute evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until desired chewy/crispiness achieved.


*Recommendation: Freeze and thaw tofu for a chewier texture. You can also substitute drained chickpeas for tofu if you like. Add them to the food processor to create the crumble texture.
