This is my Californian variation on a traditional Mexican breakfast dish. Soyrizo is a GMO-free, organic version of the Mexican sausage that’s easily available in most big super markets and pretty much the only meat substitute meat eaters always like. Even my Grandpa who is from Oaxaca likes it just as much as regular chorizo. He even buys it himself! This is the perfect breakfast for a weekend brunch or as a healthy start to a busy workday. You can sub kale or chard for the mustard greens if you prefer. Enjoy! 🙂 Jacq
