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.


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 


  • 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!
