Viva Vegan's Potato-Kale Soup with Sizzling Chorizo

Happy Vegan MoFo! Gainful employment, the World Series, The Walking Dead, and  congenital laziness have all conspired to prevent me from getting my first post in before dawn. They have failed. Not only am I posting, but I am posting about food that I made with my own two hands; food that I dished out into a solid, reusable bowl and ate with a stainless steel spoon. Tonight I successfully assembled and ingested Terry Hope Romero's Potato-Kale Soup with Sizzling Chorizo, from Viva Vegan!

There are a ton of recipes in Viva Vegan that I'm looking forward to making, but I picked the potato-kale soup tonight because it's simple and easy.  (And because I like potatoes, kale, and soup.)  I made the recipe even easier by cheating in a few places: I used Field Roast Mexican Chipotle Sausage instead of the Seitan Chorizo Sausages in the book; I used ordinary olive oil instead of the annatto-infused oil; and I used apple cider vinegar that I had on hand instead of white wine vinegar.  The results?  Still delicious.  I don't get "stuffed" with soup very often, and I am definitely stuffed with soup right now. 

Thanks, Terry!

  2. That soup looks great. I haven't tried anything "chorizo" like since becoming vegan this has given me a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yeah, this should be a gratifying month, Vanessa. Omgoshimvegan, there's another brand, Soyrizo,, that is more suitable for burritos and scrambles that's surprisingly good. (Papalote in SF uses it to great effect.)

  4. That's been m favorite dish thus far from Viva Vegan. I've made it twice - once with the chorizo recipe from the book and one with store-bought chorizo. The version with the home-made chorizo was way better.
    Cheers!
