I was cruising along in my Daniel Fast minding my own business. I was eating potatoes, beans, mushrooms and lots of veggies. And I was, for lack of a better word, content.
Then someone said, "Why don't you try some Soy Chorizo?"
I said, "No thanks. I like meat. You can't replace meat with soy."
Then I was in the grocery store and someone said, "Have you tried this Soy Chorizo? It's really good!"
I said, "Nope. Not interested. I'm a meat guy."
Then, out of the blue, Mrs. Mista shows up with a package of Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo.
OK God, I get the hint.
So this morning, I gave it a try. I started off by chopping some potatoes, bell pepper and onion, and tossing them in a hot skillet coated with Olive oil. I let them cook for a while, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes started to brown. I added salt & pepper to the potatoes and dropped in the crumbled bits of chorizo. I let that cook for a wile until the chorizo started to brown. Next I added 1/4 of water and covered until the potatoes softened.
I must admit I was pleasantly surprised! This was a really good meal. The chorizo was spicy and flavorful. I really could not tell it from the real thing. I hope you all give this a try. It might have been the best meal I've had on the Daniel Fast so far.
