Wakey Wakey!.....Beet and Potato Hash with Soy Chorizo!

Eggs are not missed in this breakfast dish.  In my opinion, this is a great breakfast to have if you know you have a busy day and may not have time for a complete lunch.  You get your vegetables, carbs and protein.  Match this with a some grapes or a banana and you will be left beyond satisfied and ready to conquer the day! 

Adding shredded beets is a nice little touch on a typically ordinary potato hash.  Gives the plate a punch of color!

There are a few options when it comes to soy chorizo, which I like to call "soyrizo".  Trader Joe's has it pre-made in the refrigerator section.  This kind is quite flavorful but a bit on the greasy side.  Many grocery stores sell dried flavored soy chorizo in plastic packages.  All you need to do is add boiling water and you are good to go.  Or, you can opt to make your own with TVP, water and appropriate spices.  I like to go with the package version.

Ingredients: (yields 2 servings)
1 potato peeled
1 beet peeled
1 small onion chopped
1 garlic glove minced
1/2 c soy chorizo
1/2 c baby spinach
2 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tbsp evoo

Beet and Potato Hash with Soy Chorizo

Boil 1/2 c water.  Add in soy chorizo and turn off heat.  Mix and set aside.  In food processor, chop potato and beet.  Remove from processor and press in between a few paper towels to remove liquid.  Heat evoo in saute pan, saute garlic and onions on medium heat for a few minutes.  Add in shredded potato and beet and saute for about 15 minutes, or until desired consistency.  Make sure to stir frequently.  If you like a bit crunchier, saute longer.  Add in spinach and parsley and season to taste.  Stir in soy chorizo mixture and bam!  Breakfast is served!
