However, last month was a vacation one for me and my brain doesn’t work for the blog when I am home in Kerala.
I couldn’t let the theme go though so here’s more of a recipe idea if you are cooking up brunch for a few friends and you have vegetarians in the pack. Here’s a disclaimer, this will only work if you have access to Trader Joe’s in your neighbourhood (sorry, non-US folks!)
When I was in the US in March, I met up with some friends for brunch at Joann’s place. Since one of us was vegetarian, her menu was eggetarian-friendly. She had a pack of these Soy Chorizos from Trader Joe’s. I loved it so much that I smuggled a pack back for TH and I.
All we did was to chop up some onions finely, add 1 tsp oil to a pan and fry them until transparent, add the chorizo to the onion, heat through, and serve! Its an amazing alternative for vegetarians and protein-packed to boot. Doesn’t it look exactly like minced meat? I can think of some creative uses for it too, like topping for pizza, wrapped in a chapati, baked up in some pastry sheets like puffs, etc.
This goes to Dhivs as my entry to her FSB theme for June! Check out her space to see what others contributed.
This looks like a perfect base for a mock NV dish. How I wish I got the Soy Chorizos here in India…sigh!
looks perfect for us vegetarians…

wow, never saw that, but then I don't frequent to trader joe's. May be it is time I do 🙂
the options one has abroad are truly amazing – and you have made such a nice dish!!
Picture set up looks great on the whole,nice recipe too!
This is a perfect veggie stuffing for a grilled sandwich. Just add some low-fat shredded mozzarella, peppers, onions and voila. Yum!
This looks so delicious
It looks very like minced meat. I have never tried soya chunks other than the ready made meal makers that are available in India. Just wrap in a roll and you have a protein rich meal:)
