Vegan Chorizo And Kale Breakfast Tacos

After working so hard on the sausages last week, you need a great little recipe to use them with, so Juddy has made a breakfast taco recipe for you. What a guy.

As mentioned in the sausage recipe, they taste really good, but I am not convinced of vital wheat gluten’s health benefits, so to counter that I am including some lemony kale, charred peppers and my ever present chipotle cashew cream. Chuck it all in a couple of tacos and you have an amazing, hangover beating (trust me) breakfast.

Serve with a big cup of coffee, some orange juice, a glass of water and a beer.

Sorry that’s ridiculous, leave out the water.

Serves 4


  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 4 Spanish style sausages
  • 1 batch chipotle cashew cream
  • 1 batch kale, leaves picked and stems discarded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 peppers cut into thin slices (I used red and yellow)
  • ½ red onion cut into thin slices
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper

Cook it:

  1. Start by making the charred peppers. Cut the peppers and onion into thin slices, as thin as your skills will allow you to. Add to a mixing bowl and then add the vegetable oil. Season with salt and pepper and mix really well. Heat a griddle pan or frying pan to as high a heat as your stove will go. Add the pepper mixture and fry for 12 – 15 minutes, stirring and scraping regularly until proper charred
  2. Rip the kale leaves off the stems and add to a mixing bowl. Pour in the lemon juice and massage for 30 seconds. Add the oil, season with salt and pepper and massage for a further 30 seconds
  3. Wash your hands because you have recently become a greasy git
  4. Add some oil to a pan and heat over a medium heat. Cut the sausages in half and then in half again, lengthways. If your sausages are particularly big, do another lengthways cut. Fry for a few minutes on each side, until you get a nice dark colour on the outside
  5. Heat your tortillas according to package instructions or follow my expert direction if using my homemade ones

Recommended Tunes:

Led Zeppelin “Led Zeppelin IV”

WHAT an album. It is easy to forget how good this bad boy is. You can go elsewhere, get all hipster and choose other Zeppelin albums as your favourite, but every now and then, you will look at the songs on Led Zeppelin IV and will be reminded of how damn good it is.

It kicks off with “Black Dog” for a start, goes straight into “Rock and Roll”, contains the greatest guitar solo ever in “Stairway to Heaven” and the sexiest, swagger enducing, rhythmic masterpiece drum bashing of “When The Levee Breaks”. You will never convince me that a better drum sound exists.

Listen – but do yourself a favour and buy it on vinyl!!
