This high-protein, 100% plant-based chorizo will leave you in disbelief. It's everything you want in Mexican chorizo, just without the meat! Enjoy this spicy, savoury, and delicious recipe as an addition to all your favorite dishes.
De-stem and shake the seeds out of all the dried chiles. Add them to a pot, cover with water, and bring to a low boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the chiles are soft and pliable. Drain and add them to a blender.
In a dry skillet over low-medium heat, toast the whole coriander seeds until fragrant. Once toasted, add them to the blender along with cayenne, oregano, cumin, cloves, salt, pepper, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, and water. Mix on high until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings to your preference.
Pour the chile mixture through a mesh strainer into a bowl (make sure to work it through with a spoon or spatula). Set aside.
Heat 3 tbsp of coconut oil over low-medium in a small frying pan. Sauté the minced garlic for 1-2 minutes, then add in the dried TVP and stir to coat in the oil.
Add in half of the marinade and cook until most of the liquid is absorbed. Then, pour in the rest of the marinade and finish cooking until no liquid remains, about 15 minutes. Taste and adjust the salt & pepper level to your liking.
Serve your chorizo in recipes like papas con chorizo, quesadillas, soups, stews, sopes, empanadas, or tamales. Happy eating!
- The TVP should have a soft, "meaty" consistency when done (not too chewy).
- If you don’t want the chorizo overly spicy, half or omit the cayenne.
- For more flavor, toast the dried chiles in a skillet for 1-3 minutes before boiling.
- If you can't find Mexican oregano, the closest sub is marjoram.
