Don't judge a book by its cover.
I needed to start out by saying that, because, let's be honest, this doesn't look that yummy. It looks weird. And it did when I was making it. But it tastes good, and that's what matters most! Right?!
So what is this? Well, not only did I make a new recipe this weekend, I also tried a whole new product. I've had this Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo in my freezer for a while now and decided to break it out this weekend.
And anything that involves avocado these days is on my good list.
I found this recipe in the cookbook, The Perfect Start to Your Day, my friend Jen gave me for my birthday. Which is a book of all breakfast recipes. The girl knows me, right?!
Soy Chorizo and Avocado Breakfast Sandy
adapted from The Perfect Start to Your Day
juice of 1/2 lime
4oz chorizo (soy or regular) sliced diagonally
4 slices of rustic bread, such as Ciabatta
handful of arugula
salt and pepper
Half the avocado and remove the pit. Scoop out the flesh and mash with the lime with some salt and pepper and set aside. Heat a skillet over med-high heat. Cook the chorizo on each side until its crisp and browned. Toast the bread and spread the avocado over 2 slices. Top off with the chorizo and arugula.
(side note, the soy chorizo doesn't have casing like the real stuff (because its fake). So beware it will crumble easily)
Looks like a hot mess, but its good!
