Today, I turn the focus of unResolution month from comfort foods (with a minor deviation into cookies) to straight vegetarian/vegan food that also happens to be ridiculously bad for you. Because, after all I did become veg for the health benefits. 🙂
Vegan Soyrizo Taquitos
This is one of my all-time favorite vegan meals. Taquitos are small tubes of tortilla that have been rolled with flavorful, (usually Mexican-inspired) filling. Usually it’s beef, but sometimes chicken or chorizo. Once the rolling is done, the whole thing is tossed into a deep fryer and made extra delicious because everything is better when fried.
Of course, if this weren’t unResolution month I would say roll them, stick them with a toothpick and bake them with a light coating of olive oil. But this is unResolution month and you must fry!!!
Oh, and if you are wondering what Soyrizo is…it’s a soy based chorizo meat alternative. I actually like it better than a lot of real chorizo that I have had because it is not nearly as oily. Still, it’s kind of grainy, so it works best hidden a dish.
Making the Soyrizo Taquitos
Taquito construction is very simple and this recipe is no different.
