This dish was a great hit at brunch today and will be added to my repertoire.
I used soy Chorizo from Trader Joe's, chopped dried cranberries, cherries and blueberries.
I feel good dish with lots of flavor. Love it!

I love the currants too! I've made a quiche in a brown rice crust that is similar to this using chard, cheddar and currants. YUM!
