Vegan Posole-Posole

Oh how I love posole.  The rich and spicy broth, the succulent shredded pork, the hominy, the yummy toppers….mmmmmm.  I came across this vegan version, and with high hopes of a posole-posole, I gathered up ingredients, chopped, opened cans, took pictures (doesn’t everybody?!), adjusted for my personal taste and pantry, and simmered away.  The verdict?  Oh.  Yeah.  It’s Posole-Posole!

This is another soup that comes together quickly enough for a weeknight, and perfect for that big football party you’re planning.

ingredients

  • 1/2 cup enchilada sauce (I had about a cup leftover from making enchiladas a couple days ago.)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups No Chicken Broth (or veggie broth)
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes (fire roasted are fabulous in this recipe)
  • 1 TBSP dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 (15 oz) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 (15 oz) cans hominy drained and rinsed  (color of your choice–I like yellow for the happy color it adds)
  • juice of two limes

Heat 1/4 cup of the broth in a large pot over medium heat and add onion and garlic.  Saute until onions are translucent, about 2 minutes.

Add enchilada sauce and lime juice.  Stir, taste and add additional sauce, lime juice or salt if needed. Simmer for another 10 minutes for flavors to marry.

Serve with a variety of toppings.  I used cilantro and chopped scallions, with baked corn chips on the side.  Have whatever sounds yummy though: avocado, sour cream, cheese, limes, extra hominy, tortillas,…..
