Recipe

I am always on the look out for ways to get incorporate more meatless meals into my diet. It’s especially hard to sneak them by my carnivorous husband who doesn’t necessarily believe it’s dinner without some kind of meaty protein. However surprisingly, he is all about the soyrizo. Normally we have it with eggs or in simple potato and soyrizo tacos, but last week I decided to mix it up with this quinoa and soyrizo bowl with pineapple inspired by How Sweet Eats. I served mine with fresh lime juice and some chipotle salsa because we just can’t get enough spice around here.
