Has anyone tried soyrizo? I've wanted to try it, but I'm kind of scared that it will taste horrible.

I've tried it a couple of times ... it's a bit spicy but not too and has good texture, especially if you saute it in a bit of oil to crisp it slightly. I usually combine it with beans or rice, salad, salsa, that sort of thing. Or tuck it into crispy taco shells and top with tomato and lettuce. It isn't strongly "sausage-y" flavored, more spicy (as I said).

I like it more than I ever expected, but it is spicy. I enjoyed it with toast and a tofu scramble.

I just bought some. it's pretty good. It was spicy, but I like that. It tasted pretty close to chorizo minus the grease.

Bah, bunch of spice wimps!



My boy and I saute the soyrizo, mix it up with some scrambled tofu and roll it up in a tortilla with a couple shots of Tabasco. Pretty close facsimile of the chorizo and eggs that I used to love back in the omni days.

That's a whole lot of soy for breakfast!



I do enjoy me a tofu scramble and sausage too, however.

I had heard of soyrizo before I had even heard of chorizo so naturally, I have no idea what chorizo tastes like. However, to the point, soyrizo is so greasy! I love it! It's the first actually greasy thing I think I've had since I went vegan.



...and it's even orange grease.

ive never had chorizo before but i know what it is. (YUCK!) this is some of the scarriest veggie stuff ive ever seen. it ranks 3rd place IMHO. 1st is that veg lobster w/shell and whiskers and 2nd is the veg haggis.



no offense or anything guys! if you think it tastes good ill take your word for it!

Better a whole lot of soy in the AM than a whole lot of animal products!

Soyrizo is really good. I just made some tamales with it for the 4th. Potato/Soyrizo tamales. All of my omni friends and family snarfed them up but good.



I checked the inside of the cardboard wrapper that holds the tube of goo together and they note the manufacturer notes that Soyrizo is much better and tastier than real, animal chorizo because it doesn't contain any lymph nodes or salivary glands. Egad!

a little oil now and then isn't exactly going to ruin your life ... it seems like the soyrizo is oily (as opposed to greasy) ... is that too fine a distinction? moderation is key!

Well, if it's supposed to imitate chorizo, then it wouldn't be right if it *weren't* greasy.



I used to love chorizo, eggs & corn tortillas in the morning... for you lacto-ovos out there, try it - scramble up the eggs & soyrizo & tear up a few corn tortillas. *heaven*
