Zucchini, Tomato and Soyrizo Sautee

I was so inspired by this awesome recipe for spicy tomato chorizo pasta that I wanted to make my own!  But Skinny Rules friendly of course, and today is my meatless day besides! Soyrizo is a great alternative to chorizo, with only 10 grams of fat per large serving.  The taste and texture is very similar to real chorizo (a little softer though).  I have had a giant zucchini from the garden on my counter for a week and several tomatoes that were just this side of mushy.

Dinner!

This sautee is quick, easy, healthy and super super yummy.  It would be great over pasta, or with quinoa.  I ate it plain and it filled me up just fine!  The zucchini are crunchy, while the soyrizo and tomatoes create a creamy, spicy sauce to compliment it.  I have left overs and I’m thinking of scrambling eggs with it for breakfast!

Zucchini, Tomato and Soyrizo Sautee 

Ingredients:

  • 5 oz. Soyrizo
  • 1 large zucchini, cubed into 1/4″ pieces
  • 2 large or several small tomatoes, chopped or halved
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • smoked paprika to taste

Drizzle olive oil in  skillet and let it heat over medium high heat.  Brown the garlic in the oil for about a minute, until fragrant.  Add the soyrizo and sautee for a few minutes, until it gets a little crispy.  Add tomatoes and zucchini, and continue to cook for another 5 minutes until zucchini are cooked but not soft.  You want a nice, firm, crunch!  Season with smoked paprika and salt and pepper if you want.   Enjoy over pasta, with some crusty bread, or by itself for a light dinner!

Let the soyrizo get all nice and crispy

don’t overcook!
