Recipe Ingredients for Vegetarian Chorizo

1 cup TVP, reconstituted with boiling water
4 chili peppers (2 ancho chilis & 2 guajillo chilis, seeded)
1 tsp oregano, preferably Mexican
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt or to taste
1/4 tsp cloves
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp vinegar
1 small onion, very finely diced
4 garlic cloves, finely diced

Recipe Directions for Vegetarian Chorizo

  1. Reconstitute the TVP with boiling water to cover, let sit, then squeeze out excess water.

  2. Grind all the dry spices (I use a coffee grinder dedicated to spices). Thoroughly mix the TVP with the spices and other ingredients. Marinate refrigerated at least a few hours - overnight is better.

  3. Use the TVP chorizo as a meat substitute in vegetable or rice dishes. For best flavor, add the TVP near the beginning of sauteing, so that is has a chance to slowly cook in oil for a bit.
