I haven't been this excited about a recipe in a minute. Its crazy simple, pretty much all technique but the results are so delicious. Years ago we used to eat the real chorizo but stopped a couple years ago when I switched to a plant based diet. Im not exclusively plant based now but I try to be as much as possible. I really don't have a diet "label". Mainly I don't do dairy, I try to stay away from gluten, all organic produce if possible and if we do eat meat its very little and always grass fed/organic. Anyways back to the chorizo story. We switched to soy chorizo a couple years ago and its been amazing. I honestly can't even tell the difference. Fast forward to a few months ago when I started breaking out in cystic acne (ugh!). With a ton of research I was told I should stay away from soy. So no more soyrizo for me! Happily though, I started to see cauliflower chorizo pop up. Now to be honest, we are not big fans of cauliflower. Its messy and kinda lacks flavor. BUT its a perfect vessel to pack with flavor and its very versatile. I have yet to try cauliflower wings.
So the search for a recipe began. I pinned a few but all of them had over 10 ingredients. I have no problem with a lot of ingredients but I prefer simple recipes for breakfast. I mean I wake up every morning HUNGRY, I mean really hungry! Then I realized most of the spices were in the average taco seasoning packet. So naturally I wanted to try it out. Im happy I did, because it worked! Super simple recipe and I think this would be a fun thing to make with the kids, especially the part where you squish the cauliflower with your hands.
I hope you can try this super easy recipe. Tag me if you do or tell me about it in the comments.
1 cup Cauliflower rice
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes with the oil
1 tbs taco seasoning
Pulse Everything in the food processor until fully combined. Then transfer to a bowl and squish the mixture with your hand until it resembles chorizo or "ground meat". Heat the mixture in a lightly oiled saute pan on medium heat until its thoroughly cooked. All done! Now stuff your burritos, tacos, nachos and so on...
