Chorizo and Sweet Potato- A Guest Post

Hi. My name is Camille and my Mom writes The Vegan Version blog because she is vegan and likes to cook, a lot.  I am ten years old and I am vegetarian because I think it is wrong to kill animals.

Last night I cooked dinner because I also like to cook a lot. We had some Helen's Kitchen Veggie Chorizo and peppers in the house and I wanted to try something new. I don't like sweet potatoes, but my Mom does so I made one for her.  I tried some sweet potato but I didn't care for it.

The dinner was easy to make. There was lots of chopping but I know how to use a knife so that part was easy, too. I didn't use a recipe I just made it up as I went along.

Here is what I came up with. Thanks for reading.

Chorizo and Sweet Potato

1 package vegan chorizo
1 sweet potato, baked and sliced
1/4 red pepper, diced
1/4 orange pepper, diced
1/4 green pepper, diced
1/4 yellow pepper, diced
1/2 jalapeño pepper, diced
1/4 medium red onion, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Pierce the sweet potato with a fork, wrap in foil and place in the oven for about 40-50 minutes depending on the size of the potato.

Once sweet potato is almost finished heat the olive oil in a medium skillet and add the peppers and onions.  Season with salt and pepper. Let cook until starting to soften and add the vegan chorizo (be sure to remove the casing first).  Cook until sausage is lightly browned and warmed through.

Slice the sweet potato and serve topped with sausage mixture.


  1. Hi Camille, I really like your ingredient list and displaying the sausage and peppers on top of a sweet potato slice is ingenious, and delicious. Congratulations!:) D.Daniels
