This meaty soyrizo will blow your mind away! It is perfectly spicy and extremely flavorful, as well as ready in just 15 minutes with only 9 ingredients.


  • 14 oz firm tofu (400 g)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp chili powder


  1. Chop the tofu and use a fork to crumble it into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet and cook the tofu over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes or until it starts to golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients, stir until well combined, and cook over medium-high heat for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the tofu is ready, stirring occasionally.
  4. Serve your soyrizo immediately with recipes like vegan Spanish chorizo and potato stew, vegan chorizo and potato tacos, vegan Spanish tofu scramble with potatoes and chorizo, or vegan Mexican-style potatoes with chorizo, or any recipe that calls for vegan chorizo.
  5. Keep the soyrizo leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.


  • This soy chorizo recipe will only work with firm or extra firm tofu, not soft or silken tofu.
  • Feel free to use any oil you have on hand to make your soyrizo.
  • Soy sauce or tamari can be replaced with coconut aminos, and the apple cider vinegar with white vinegar or lemon juice.
  • If you can’t find liquid smoke, you could also use smoke powder or smoked paprika instead of the regular paprika. Omit this ingredient if you want.
  • This soy chorizo recipe calls for traditional American chili powder, not cayenne. Cayenne and international chili powders are usually incredibly spicy. So if you live outside of the United States, please keep that in mind. If you can only find cayenne, add it to taste until the sauce is okay for you, but not too spicy. Omit this ingredient if you’re not into spicy food.
