Vegan Soy Chorizo Potato Hash - big, bold, and complex flavor from soy chorizo meets tender and creamy potato to elevate your breakfast plate. 


  • 1 pound of Yukon gold potato, diced into 1/2 inch cube
  • 1 teaspoon salt (optional, see note below)
  • 4 ounces of vegan soy chorizo (1/3 of Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo)
  • 1/4 large onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Wash the Yukon gold potato and diced into 1/2 inch cubes. Place them into a medium-size pot and cover it with water. Add 1 teaspoon of salt (optional) and bring it to boil.
  2. Once it comes to a boil, continue to boil for 5 minutes. Drain the potato and set it aside. 
  3. In a large non-stick skillet, cook 4 ounces of soy chorizo on medium heat for 3-5 minutes. The chorizo should crumble easily. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon. Once it's cooked, take them out of the pan and set them aside.
  4. On the same skillet, add about 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and cook the diced onion on medium heat until onions are translucent. 
  5. Add the boiled potato to the pan and add the rest of the olive oil. Season the potato with onion powder and garlic powder. Stir so the potato is well coated with the seasoning and oil.
  6. Arrange the potato so that they form a single layer in the pan. Without stirring or touching the potato, cook for 3 minutes. This will brown the potato nicely.
  7. Flip the potato and arrange them in a single layer again. Cook without stirring for additional 2 minutes. 
  8. Add the cooked chorizo and stir in with the potato. Cook for 1-2 minutes. 


  • Adding salt when boiling potato is optional. The soy chorizo is pretty high in sodium and if you are watching your sodium level, feel free to skip this step. I personally think adding salt will bring out the flavor of potato but it is not necessary.
  • It is important that you cut your potato into 1/2 inch size so that it will cook in 5 minutes of boiling time. If you don't want to cut up a potato that small, you can boil it for a longer period of time. The potato should be cooked but hold its shape. 
  • When cooking soy chorizo (from Trader Joe's), make sure you remove the casing. The casing is plastic and you don't want to cook the plastic with your food!
