This recipe is a must try simply because of how flavorful the chorizo is! You practically forget you’re not eating the real thing lol.

No but seriously, the combination of seitan, mushrooms, and walnuts creates a very believable meat crumble. The addition of onion, garlic, and jalapeno creates a tone of freshness and the long list of spices brings the whole mixture to life. Apple cider vinegar creates a slight caramelization on the crumble.
