Vegetable Posole

Makes 4 servings

Posole is a traditional soup or stew made with hominy – dried corn kernels that have been soaked in lye-water. The soaking process gives hominy a unique flavor and texture, and actually makes the corn kernels more nutritious – by converting some of the B vitamins it contains so they’re more easily absorbed by the body.

  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups mushrooms, quartered
  • 2 carrots, sliced

  • 2 cups canned tomatoes
  • 1- 29 ounce can hominy
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Black pepper to taste
