Vegan Apple Valley Breakfast

Thursday, October 21, 2010

     My family has a tradition of going to western NC every year, and one of my favorite areas to visit is called Apple Valley. After returning from a trip there I was inspired to create a breakfast with the flavors of the area. This sweet and savory, vegan breakfast uses the region's star ingredient (apples of course) and combines it with flavors inspired by the Mexican population in the area. I used soy-based ingredients when creating the meal.

 - 2 apples (I prefer Fuji)
 - 12 oz. Mexican chorizo (or a vegan substitute, I used Soyrizo)
 - 5 oz. white Mexican cheese (or a vegan substitute, such as Quesadilla)

  1. Prepare the "chorizo" in a skillet according to the package directions. (You may need to add a bit of olive oil, especially if using real chorizo - but be aware that some grease will cook out.)
  2. Meanwhile, chop the apples into even, small pieces. Add to the skillet and mix well. Allow the apples to cook and soften for about 3 minutes.
  3. Grate the "cheese" over the warm mixture and fold it in as it melts. Serve and enjoy!
